The key word was Wow, which we repeated constantly.
After ogling at New Navajo Falls we continued down the trail another .5 mile (.8 km) and stopped in our tracks when we saw Havasu Falls.
Trail to right of signs
With full packs still on our backs we hiked down to the base of the falls.
The torrent of water plunging 100 feet (30.48 meters) spread a heavy spray onto the beach, and camera lens.
Caves in the travertine formed by different flows of water in the past.

The 2008 flood destroyed the old travertine rims causing heavy silting in the pools that can be seen in the first photo.

We returned several times, later in the day without our packs and the next day also.
Home Sweet Home
The campground was less than .25 mile (.4 km) away.
