297--Arizona: The Grand Canyon
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 06 2005 - 04:45 PST
2000 million years of the earth's history is revealed in the massive gorge of the Grand Canyon.

2000 million years of the earth's history is revealed in the massive gorge of the Grand Canyon.

cherie writes: There are certain landscapes that defy description. Carved by the thrust of the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon lets the traveler peek into the earth’s deepest secrets. The canyon walls, layered with 2000 million years of history, stand as a testament to time. Looking over the edge, your eye traces the lines of cliffs and valleys, plateaus and gorges, through narrows and across plains. The Grand Canyon is 1 mile deep (1,600 meters), 277 miles long (446 kilometers) and 4 to 8 miles wide (6-29 kilometers) depending on your vantage point. Come see the photos as the sun sinks below the horizon and makes the canyons seams of marble glow with luminescence.

Near the glorious Grand Canyon is the Glen Canyon Dam with its 3,700-ft towering walls of concrete. The Dam was built with blocks of concrete 7.5-feet tall its construction created the body of water we now call, Lake Powell. What did the fish say when it ran into the concrete wall? Dam!

296--Arizona: Sedona, Pulled to the Vortex
@ CherieSpotting     Jun 30 2005 - 06:05 PST
Cherie underneath a towering Saguaro Cactus, the largest cactus in the United States.  Some Saguaros are over 200 years old and reach over 50-feet in height.

cherie writes: Sedona locals say: “God Created the Grand Canyon, but He lives in Sedona.” The Anasazi (or “ancient ones” in Navajo) were the first people to inhabit Sedona, but the city takes her name from Sedona Schnebly. Good thing the town folk back in 1902 had the good sense to go with Sedona’s first name! (Plus I think her husband realized that you get a lot of action in the bedroom when you name a town after your wife!)

People travel to Sedona for a variety of reasons—some come to align their charkas, while others come to ride horseback or play golf. In Sedona you can hike, meditate, and even have a photo of your “aura” taken. Believers come here to heal their souls, rejuvenate their spirit and harness their energy. Some are drawn to the beauty of the spectacular red-rock formations, while others are pulled the vortices that Sedona is renowned for.

225--Arizona: Havasupai, Abandoned Mines & Miserable Mule Rides
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 17 2004 - 08:48 PST
It seems like this spot at was made just for me.

cherie writes: There are 3 ways to exit Havasupai Indian Reservation.

1) Hike (for studs and Olympic athletes)
2) Helicopter (for rich people and wusses)
3) Mule rides (for psychos and idiots)

We chose poorly. Even with my natural built-in extra padding, the 10-mile mule ride was miserable. My mighty mule ran most of the way and tried to shove (unsuccessfully) other mules off the cliff.

But the unparalleled raw beauty of Havasupai was worth the extreme effort it took to get there (and get back home.)

The Supai believe that it is their duty in life to protect their pristine land. Havasupai is a magical and peaceful place, where only the water rushes.

223--Arizona: Havasupai Indian Reservation, Havasu Falls

The 10-mile hike down to Havasupai Indian Reservation ends with Havasu Falls.

cherie writes: The Grand Canyon. It's the biggest canyon in the world, and it holds some of the world's most picturesque waterfalls. The huge canyon swallows noise and screams silence. In the heat of the summer, Supai is full of peaceful magic.

Jean, Lisa and I took a girl's trip out to Havasupai Indian Reservation. We hiked 10 miles into the canyon's belly and found a paradise of red cliffs, pristine waters and lush foliage. It's a place where fairy tales are real. A place where Native Americans gallop through the lush trails singing the songs of their ancestors.

Here are the photos of our 10-mile hike and our first glimpse of Havasu Falls. It's the most idyllic waterfall I've ever seen.
