  •  My only experience with the Little Colorado (3+ / 0-)

    is from an outlook off SR 64 west of Cameron - Little Grand Canyon indeed! In fact, on my very first trip ever to the South Rim (ca. 1983), my friends who took me opted to enter the Park from the east side and we stopped at this great Little Colorado outlook on the Navajo reservation. This was a day trip out of Phoenix and unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate: by the time we got to the South Rim, there was wet snow and enough mist/fog to completely obscure any views of the Grand Canyon itself. My actual first glimpses of the South Rim vistas were not until several years later.

    Living in Phoenix, you learn to perfect your own little "tours" for the visitors sure to arrive. No more one day trips - minimum two with an overnight on the South Rim and a stop on the way in Sedona for the Broken Arrow Pink Jeep Tour. All great fun!

    Next time we're in Flag, we'll have to check out the falls you describe. I never knew of their existence. Thanks!

      and if you took the first vista coming up that long hill, toward the eastern park entrance, that'd be Navajo Point, I think it's now called; where you walk through the artisans gallery, as it were (all the booths), then go past and down the limestone steps to the great promenade overlooking the gorge. It is the best of all vistas along the road. As far as weather goes, actually, it's a lucky day for visitors to experience the iffy weather, but you seemed to have a few days of such luck. Well, you live close enough and you're bound to hit sunny days. As for the falls, they're worth seeing, wet or dry. Just steer your way to Leupp and see if you can follow the directions I inscribed into the diary. If you get lost, the Navajos are very kind and friendly people. . .they'll point you in the right direction. Thanks for posting your comment.

          I have heard rumors (for years, in fact), the Navajos will start charging admission to go out to the platform vista area. I have also heard the artisans who sell their artwork oppose the idea. So far, it's free to walk thru the makeshift gallery and do just that. So far!
