Mooney Falls on the Havasupai Reservation

Mooney Falls

Mooney Falls is a 200-foot tall waterfall just one mile downstream from the more popular Havasu Falls. Both are located on the Havasupai Reservation in the Grand Canyon and sees heavy traffic due to the fact it’s a very desert atmosphere complete with massive red cliffs, prickly-pear cactus, cottonwood trees and plenty of sand. What makes it so unique is a beautiful turquoise creek (that flow more like a river) running through the middle of it all. This photo was taken in 2007 and in the summer of 2008 there were some pretty intense floods that completely changed the way all the waterfalls look.

On a more personal note, I heard back from Canon yesterday about my camera and it looks like I’ll be without one for a little longer. The repair estimate jumped from just a couple of hundred dollars to nearly $1,000 so it appears as though I’m in between cameras as I can do nothing but wait for a solution to present itself. So expect more photos from the archives until I can get my hands on another camera to start shooting again.
