Grand Falls of the Little Colorado River

Who would believe that a huge waterfall exists out in the middle of the vast Colorado Plateau? The key is that it is dry most of the year. Only when there is enough rainfall to make the river flood is there runoff that makes a huge waterfall. Of course, the water is not sparkling blue and white, it is the color of the sandstone and mud. When you are standing next to the waterfall the spray leaves mud spots on your clothes and skin. It is had to get a perspective of size anywhere on the Plateau, but this waterfall is taller than Niagara Falls in New York state.
