Even though they are taller than Niagara Falls, the Grand Falls on the Little Colorado River are one of Arizona’s best kept secrets. Dry throughout most of the year, we should be hitting it just right to enjoy the dramatic spring runoff from the White Mountains. Often called the “Chocolate Falls” due to the muddiness of the Colorado River, the Grand Falls are thunderous mid-March—dramatic and breathtakingly beautiful. With no signs to direct us, and only a dirt road to get us across scenery that looks a lot like the painted desert, the Grand Falls on the Little Colorado River are not a popular tourist destination, but well worth the journey. We’ll enjoy lunch on self in Flagstaff before arriving at the Falls. Historic downtown Flagstaff is home to many restaurants, offering something for everyone. Don’t wait to call in your reservations, seating is limited, and you will not want to miss this incredible annual trek!
