Wow, that is one sobering video. The bridge there was totally destroyed to the foundation...chumley wrote:Search "youtube havasu creek flood damage usgs" for a video of the result of the flood.
pretty amazing video. Makes me want to go check it out! I'm especially interested in that beach below Mooney - that debris pile must have some amazing things in it! I wonder how long it would take for that to slowly erode away!?nonot wrote:On Youtube, look for "New Supai" posted by fnotl, it shows the new awesome 50 foot falls, the wood-plank "bridges", the dried up Navajo Falls, Havasu Falls with the stacked rock attempting to rebuild the travertine dam, the campgrounds with trees (flatter and less privacy as trees have suffered some damage), and mooney falls without the lagoon.
I couldn't agree more. Approximately 36,000 Americans DIE every year from the flu. So far there are 109 cases of H1N1 in the United States, and one fatality (an infant brought to a Brownsville hospital from Mexico for treatment).azbackpackr wrote:So, they are buying into the media feeding frenzy. I hear that stocks for the companies that manufacture Relenza and Tamiflu are skyrocketing.
Someday there may be a true epidemic and no one will believe them, because they always cry wolf.
You can skip the first 3 minutes ... just the hike down. And grab yourself some dramamine before you watch it. There's more transitions than the worst-ever business meeting powerpoint presentation.nonot wrote:On Youtube, look for "New Supai" posted by fnotl

Ariz. tribe hit by flooding to reopen to visitors
May 29, 2009 11:47 AM
FLAGSTAFF - Arizona's Havasupai Tribe is ready to welcome back tourists after months spent repairing trails and clearing debris from a flood that swept through their reservation last summer.
Tribal vice chairman Matthew Putesoy says the reservation deep in a gorge off the south side of the Grand Canyon plans to reopen to visitors on Monday.
Water from a summer thunderstorm surged through the canyon in mid-August, forcing the evacuations of hundreds of residents and tourists. Tribal members soon returned, but the reservation remained closed to tourists.
The area is best known for its towering blue-green waterfalls.
Those who hope to travel there might have to wait a while. Reservations at the lodge and campground are booked through mid-July.
