Looks like a good place for a swim.
Yeap...but I read that all the toilet drainage is going down to Havasu creek... haha
Still a very beautiful spot...
So you've really seen'em all while I just translated some texts about them. It's about time you moved north. :)
yes, I am thinking about moving north...but first have to go home for a while to visit with family...
What texts did you translate?
You say the "people of the blue-green water"
dump their sewage into Havasu Creek?
I thought the "floods of 1997" were instrumental in "flushing" out that waterway,
but seems you have a valid point by not going
in the water.
You don't want to move south to Mexico ???
Hi Larry, no, no Mexico for me... me no gusta hablar mexicano...haha
I like colder climate, would prefer Canada...

Quite a few National Geographic articles. As to Havasu, I hadn't been aware of the existence of this 'oasis' and its falls until I got that text to work on. Talking of home, I wonder if you could browse your files for some pix :) of the Moravian karst, Podyji NP or Šumava, which are virtually missing from SP (there's probably only one).
I have a lot of old photos from Podyji and Moravian Karst - my house is located between those 2, and less than 3/4 hr drive to each of those places. Thanks for the idea Jacek...sometimes people think that things close to them are not as precious...
Right, Liba, not a wilderness like what's close to your today's home; still a great place (I've visited the caves, and the sinkhole of Macocha; haven't seen the Dyje valley though), kind of epicentre of CE Europe :), the old capital cities nearby, and now that the border has virtually vanished the Alps in the backyard - not bad!
Yes, I am thinking to live there for a part of a year (inherited a house), and you are right - Alps in the backyard, about 1.5 hr drive (depending on the traffic around Vienna). Very nice in the summer, kind of depressing in the winter.
I see you have it all, Liba! The vineyard as well?:) Yep, those grey winters looking like autumn, that's depressing. Still, there's an airport nearby, plus that great beery climbing gym!:D
Jacek, you have a good memory. I was planning to spend some time in that climbing gym and drink beer or 2 between the climbs.
Yes, my family owns big vineyards....
Wondering, whether you can smoke pot in Amsterdam climbing gyms?
That'd be a real hot s-pot! LOL
When I was there in December 2006, the "flowing walls" had a very different appearance. I wonder if they have dramatic mud flows every spring.
I don't know, but the flood of 2008, was a big one. I think that even the village had to be evacuated.
Yes, it was taken in 2009. Lovely place, I agree...
I have got to visit this location at least once in my lifetime! The colors are amazing.
I hope it will happen, and you will visit soon. The hike into the canyon is one of the easiest hikes in Grand Canyon, not too steep.
