Little Colorado River Gorge, Arizona
The Little Colorado River Gorge snakes its way across the Navajo
Nation before feeding into the "Big" Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
Of course, far fewer people see the Little Colorado Gorge than the Grand
Canyon, but in my view the two places are equally impressive. The lowest
reaches of the Little Colorado River also have torquoise-blue water,
much like the more famous blue water of Havasu Canyon.
