"" Water Falls Tip by Yubert

Water Falls, Grand Canyon: 6 reviews and 5 photos

 
 

Mooney Falls, is named for a miner who fell to his death nearby. At 220 feet, it is taller than Niagara Falls.

The falls' turquoise waters give the tribe its name: ha for water, vasu for blue-green and pai for people. The color comes from the limestone that is highly concentrated in the tumbling waters. In the mist and spray below the falls, delicate travertine ledges shape arcing pools. The minerals also drape the cliff walls in flaring aprons of stone.

Directions: Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
