Havasu Creek in the Grand Canyon - Home of the Havasupai
WESTERN RIVER EXPEDITIONS
Day five [of Western's Grand Canyon 6 day expedition] you’re going to stop at Havasu. And even day three, day four, you know, some of those earlier days, they’re almost setting you up to stop at Havasu. It’s the highlight of the trip for most people.
Havasu consists of waterfalls and pools, and waterfalls and pools, and waterfalls and pools for miles and miles and miles. It’s a great place to, sort of, maybe do your own thing and leave the group for a while, and go find a - your own private nook for swimming, or sunbathing, or, or just hanging out.
Havasu is a gorgeous canyon. Blue green water, uh, flowing on down over big boulders, made white by the minerals in the water. That’s Havasu.
The water does something you wouldn’t expect when you’re in the desert. It’s beautiful.
I was in this canyon as a seven year old, with my family. As a seven year old, you remember the, the hugeness of the uh, the size of those rapids. You also remember these magical places, and the blue water of Havasu Canyon.
Earlier today we stopped at Havasu. Got to hike up the, the canyon a little bit, and my wife Terry was bold enough to jump into the water.
My favorite thing was Havasupai. The water was so blue. It was warm, and it rushed over the rock. It’s just really spectacular. Everything - the serenity - it was just gorgeous.
I’d always heard about Havasupai, and had never been there. Most of the people that I know that have been there, have come down from the top, so they - they’re at a different, um, spot than we were at. But it was so beautiful. If, if you told someone that the color of the water was the color it really is, they would never believe you. And when they look at the photos, they’re going to think they were photoshopped. And it was just refreshing to get in and swim and hike.
That blue water is something that is just unbelievable to me. It’s the color I’ve never seen in nature anywhere else.
Havasu, and so much of the other offerings of the canyon, has really helped me to appreciate nature, and to really respect what grandeur and what amazing experiences lie beyond the… the four walls of work.
We took dozens of pictures, and they'll never do it justice.
The cameras can take pictures, but it’s difficult to capture the grandeur of where you are. Yeah, this has been an absolutely fantastic, uh, adventure. To witness all the scenery, and the magnificence of it, it’s overwhelming. Have I found peace down here? Sure. It’s just been nice to look at the rocks and listen to the river as we head on back. It’s been a great experience.
You can see the Grand Canyon from a lookout point on the north and south rims, but until you’ve floated down the center of it, you really haven’t seen the Grand Canyon. And I don't know of a better way to see this, this creation than floating through the middle of it.

Bulls Run Loose on 15 Freeway / Norco RAW FOOTAGE
NORCO - On Sunday evening August 20th the California Highway Patrol responded to reports two bulls running loose in the northbound lanes of Interstate 15. The incident occurred shortly before 6:00pm on the northbound 15 at the 68th Street over crossing after two bulls some how managed to escape from the trailer they were being transported in. The owners were able to quickly capture one however, the second bull ran across the northbound lanes, jumped the center divider K-rails and continued across the southbound lanes. The California Highway Patrol along with an off duty Lieutenant with the San Bernardino Police Department were able to corral the bull on the southbound shoulder of the Interstate as the young bull seemed to tire out and lay down. After about 20 minutes the bull once again started to run along the southbound side of freeway after attempts to lasso the bull were unsuccessful. The bull managed to run up an embankment and up onto the freeway shoulder and began to run northbound on the southbound 15. The bull once again crossed all lanes of the southbound 15, jumped the center divider and ran across the northbound lanes. After almost an hour, the bulls owners were able to corner the bull and lasso it successfully. Amazingly neither bull was injured and no accidents were reported as a result of the bulls running loose on the interstate. How the bulls were able to escape the trailer is unclear.
