Description This beautiful scenery is located on the Havasupai Indian Reservation, which is at the western end of the Grand Canyon. To reach this location, you must either hike or ride a donkey 8 miles down to the village, then hike an additional 3 miles to get to the falls. It requires at least an overnight stay. I hiked 8 miles to visit the village of Supai in Arizona...... ..... ..... .....The trailhead is located at Hualapai Hilltop (which is located at the end of BIA Road 18), where there is a large parking lot, a heli-pad, portable toilets, and the main office for the Havasupai. The trail can be traveled by foot, by horseback, or on a mule service the Havasupai offer. The mule service can also be purchased for luggage/packs only, which allows an easier hike and the ability to bring down more luxuries. The trail starts out at the hilltop, where it switch-backs down the side of the canyon for about 3/4 of a mile. This is by far the most difficult part of the trail, and is much more difficult on the way back up. The trail is approximately 8 miles (13 km) long to Supai, with an extra 2 miles (3.2 km) added on in order to reach the campgrounds, and descends some 3000 vertical feet (914 meters)...... ..... ..... .....The switch-backs stop when the plateau is reached, a point that is marked by a small rest area made from rocks and cement. The trail then leads down off the plateau into a dry streambed. Caution should always be taken when entering a dry streambed in any desert, as it is a prime place for flash floods. The trail follows the streambed down. ***** ***** ***** *****If you are interested in other sizes, greeting cards, or prints on acrylic or metal, please check out our website at: http://alan-and-marcia-socolik.artistwebsites.com/ ***** ***** ***** *****
Alan And Marcia Socolik, henderson, nv Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement Alan and Marcia, Nevada residents, are avid photographers. Alan takes many photos while hiking around the area – you will see some of his dramatic landscape photos in our portfolio. Marcia looks at things from a different perspective – her photos are usually still life or photos of objects that she finds interesting or unique. Together, they present the eclectic display of photos which you see here.
As you can see, Marcia is camera-shy - she would rather be behind the lens than in front of it. ;)
