Havasu Falls

Havasu Falls in Arizona's Grand Canyon National Park is uniquely beautiful, as cool, clear water roars over red canyon rocks to collect in a pool below. This is a sacred waterfall cared for by the Havasupai people, who live on a reservation that includes the falls. You can hike in to see it, or the Havasupai offer horse or mule rides, which will make the journey as interesting as the destination.
