While the hike was really fun the major treasure that tourists come to is the falls one can see beyond the village of Supai. We checked into the lodge, but we really could not access our rooms until sometime just before noon. So, we scouted the path to the falls. The idea was to head to the falls and then comeback later. Off we went.
This area has issues with flooding. We saw signs warning us to go to the high areas if that happened. In 2008, the flood diverted the water that runs through this area in such away that what was known as Navajo Falls was no more. The mudslide of that flood ended up creating two new falls instead.
The Havasupai Indians are known as the Havsuw 'Baaja, "people of the blue green waters". The water has a nice turquoise look to it.
We were able to head down below. There was a nice mist that came from the falls down here. The day was not super hot, but I could see how great it would be down here on a hot day.
