Today we conclude my revisit to northern AZ with a shot of Grand Falls. One year ago this week I made the trip to visit the “Chocolate Falls”.
This location was preceded with stops at Two Guns (an old ghost town off of Interstate 40) and quick stop through Winslow Arizona. I had originally planned to post a pic from Winslow today and then follow up with a Grand Falls shot, but decided to jump to the good stuff. Not to mention I wasn’t real excited about my remaining Winslow images.
One thing I found interesting about Grand Falls is a lot of the natives here didn’t even know of its existence. Of course that is easy to understand because this place you don’t find by accident. A simple search on Google maps will show you what I mean.
The falls were breath taking and simply amazing to take in. We were able to hike down to the bottom area on the left in the above image. What was crazy was how much green vegetation was down in that area. We all said it felt like a scene from Jurassic Park with the falls, green grass, and high rock cliffs. The only thing that was missing was a T-Rex.
And finally a big thank you to our buddy Mike Olbinski for sharing this gem with us and organizing the trip. I’m looking forward to the next one.
Until next time…
