Too thin to plow, too thick to drink
Every few years, the Little Colorado River floods. When it does, the Grand Falls of the Little Colorado River become a spectacular sight. There are, of course, problems taking pictures. The main one is that the water really is so muddy that it has the reddish brown color and when it billows into a spray, the spray is really airborne liquid mud and it coats everything, including your camera. It is hard to get a grasp of the scale of this waterfall. It is actually almost 200 feet high, higher than the famous Niagara Falls in New York.
