Attractive Acrylic Fridge Magnet Depicting Grand Falls On The Little Colorado River, Arizona
This acrylic fridge magnet, from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts, shows the splendour of Grand Falls, on the Colorado River, in Arizona. With the power and majesty of The Falls in the foreground, framed by the bright blue Arizona skies, this is a beautiful piece of memorabilia from the area. The Grand Falls are in the midst of the The Painted Desert, part of the Navajo Nation. The falls only run at certain times of the year when they deposit heavy rainfalls, in summer, or snow melts, in spring, into the Colorado River. They are often referred to as 'The Chocolate Falls' due to the muddy waters. The picture on our fridge magnet shows this wonder of nature at full flow.
The Grand Falls On The Little Colorado River, Arizona
Approximately thirty miles from the city of Flagstaff, the Grand Falls were originally formed when a lava flow blocked the Colorado River causing the water to divert. The Falls were formed where the water found a point to re-join the river. The site has a mysterious beauty and a remote location. There are no paved access roads, and an all-terrain vehicle is normally required. Picnic benches are provided for visitors though and the area is popular with hikers. Permits are required to hike and it is against Navajo Law to leave the hiking paths. The paths are not easy for those wanting to take them, with drop offs around The Falls themselves. But as can be seen from this attractive acrylic fridge magnet, Grand Falls is a sight that can never be forgotten.
