Also called Chocolate Falls or Muddy Falls... in this light I might have
called it Copper Falls. A waterfall in the desert - quite a sight to behold.
And, indeed, the phenomena can only be seen in March and April, or
again during the summer monsoon season- which is very unpredictable.
Dependent on the amount of precipitation the San Francisco Peaks
have gotten, the Little Colorado River will either rush with snow melt
or monsoon flood... or will trickle to a muddy stream. Grand Falls
was created when the nearby Merriam Crater lava flow dammed the
river, and the water was diverted... the waterfall was formed where
it met back up with it's original path.
Frank had shown a few photos of the Falls on his own blog a few
months ago... I hope mine are just a bit different, so as not to bore you!
