Havasu Falls is located in a remarkable side canyon of the Grand Canyon, about 30 miles west of Grand Canyon Village. Access to it is from Havasupai Hilltop, at the end of a paved road about 90 miles northwest of Seligman in northwestern Arizona. The Havasupai Indian Reservation, located at the bottom of the canyon, can be reached by either a three to five hour hike down the canyon or via a seven minute helicopter ride. Havasu Falls is another two miles down the canyon.
The canyon is 277 miles long, ranges in width from 4 to 18 miles wide and is up to a mile deep. Great photographic viewpoints on the South Rim include Lipan Point, Hopi Point, Mather Point, Moran Point, Maricopa Point, Desert View and Pima Point on the South Rim. North Rim viewpoints included Bright Angel, Cape Royal and Point Imperial.
Bryce Canyon National Park is located in southwestern Utah at a height of 8,000 to 9,000 feet. The park is famous for its giant natural amphitheater, a result of erosion. Within the park are enormous hoodoos and spires whose red, orange and white colors glow at sunrise and sunset.
