Flood damage in Havasu Canyon

AZGS geologist is heading back to Havasu Canyon at the request of the Havasupai Tribe to finish up our assessment of last weeks floods. His preliminary report is being incorporated in the request for federal disaster declaration being prepared by the Tribe. Here are a few photos shot last week of the damage in the campground.

The photo at upper center is looking down vertically into the mud-filled pool below Mooney Falls. There were no reports of injuries. Note the tent washed into the trees in the upper right photo. The Tribe hopes to re-open to tourists in a month.
