Last weekend my man and I went on an afternoon trip to Grand Falls, which is located on Navajo Nation. The Falls are formed from snow melt and monsoon rains that travel a path heading into the Little Colorado River. The water cascades over sandstone into a beautiful canyon that is sandstone on one side of the river, and volcanic rock on the other.
The volcanic rocks are hard and sharp, making them difficult to climb without proper footwear. There were some older folks and women toting babies who turned back because the trail down was too rough for them. It was a little hard to find, but once we made it down into the canyon it was well worth it. We climbed up some of the rocks to get a closer look at the waterfalls and dip our feet into the pools before they rushed over the edge into the canyon below.
I’ve decided waterfalls are pure magic, stealing all your worry and pain into the waters crashing below. I felt 10 pounds lighter on our hike home. ~
