Tucked away in the Southwestern region of the Grand Canyon lies the remote Havasupai Indian Reservation. The land, which was at one time one of the most isolated spots in all of Arizona, now sees 25,000 visitors a year, according to American Southwest. People descend 10 miles into the canyon on mule-back, via helicopter, or on foot to enjoy some of the most spectacular views Mother Nature has to offer. I?d seen pictures of the waterfalls, the main attraction of Havasu, and immediately added the vacation destination to the top of my list.

I’m here walking along the Grand River in Grand Haven, Mich. It’s 10:36 a.m. with a cold breeze blowing in off of the river, and a bank of fog is sitting just a bit farther out. The smoke bellows from atop an old factory just to the north with no one in sight, except for the little birdies flying in circles around me and the odd salmon that jump periodically as their splashes echo in surround sound. I feel like I’m reliving a moment in time that has been captured before in an old novel or the movie “A River Runs Through It.” Even though I can’t really remember it. Time is at a standstill, and I am OK with it. Sometimes life at home seems to be going so fast — too fast for that matter.

Harrison Milanian trekked through the Mohave Desert for five days in 130-degree heat. Coyotes urinated on his tent while he tried to sleep in the Florida woods. He walked three miles through a thunderstorm. The 22-year-old Tampa, Fla., resident persevered through all those events and ended his nearly three-month cross-country walk Sunday at Main Beach in Laguna Beach. Wearing a sign that displayed his Facebook page address, americaonfoot , Milanian strolled barefoot south along Broadway Street, crossed Coast Highway and walked across the sand toward the ocean.

Insurance that the city won’t get stuck with the bill to make unfinished construction projects safe is being considered. The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to direct City Manager Ken Frank and City Atty. Philip Kohn to look into the possibility of requiring a larger bond for grading to ensure the city doesn’t end up with projects that are a safety hazard and expensive to mitigate. “About a month ago it was brought to my attention that there was a hole in the middle of a street — apparently the contractor went belly-up,” Councilwoman Toni Iseman said.

CHERRIL DOTY "How sense-luscious the world is" -- Diane Ackerman There is nothing quite like a train ride to slow one down. And at the same time, there is nothing like the long, slow ride on a foreign train to heighten the senses. Considered by many the Grand Canyon of Mexico, Copper Canyon -- in truth both larger and deeper than the Grand Canyon -- is really a series of canyons in northern Mexico. On a Thanksgiving holiday getaway, we traveled with friends John and Bonnie through this gorgeous area.

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do. There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground." -- Rumi Kanab Creek is the largest tributary canyon system on the north side of the Grand Canyon. I've had the remarkable good fortune to hike its lower miles twice in one season. It's rock-strewn canyon slips between step walls colored with mauves, reds, deep browns and golds. Large boulders litter the creek bed, shoved by upstream flashes and rock falls from its vertical slopes.

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE 'He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead ... " I think that when Albert Einstein made this statement, he cannot have been thinking of the word in its full meaning of reverence, respect, dread and wonder. When we say something is "awesome," dread is not what comes to mind. But when we consider antonyms for "awe" -- disrespect, disregard, apathy, or indifference -- Einstein's point is well taken.

I have never understood why a flock of crows is called a “murder.” It is such a harsh term for an intelligent and entertaining creature. Each morning I rise to the raucous sound of a flock — or a murder, if you will — of crows just outside the windows. Better than any alarm clock, once they begin the gurgles and gargles of the feeding ritual for the young, there is no sleep for me. From dawn until dusk the boisterous cawing of crows can be heard through the canyon as backdrop to the sounds of human industry.

Less than two months ago, I stood at the edge of a bluff overlooking the aquamarine pools of Havasu Falls, and watched in amazement as a stream of white water rushed over the burnt sienna rocks, crashing into the pools 100 feet below. I stand in this exact spot once again, only this time through the lens of Greg MacGillivray’s video camera. The surroundings feel completely real in this IMAX, three-dimensional film documentary. So real, I can almost feel the heavy, cool mist that permeates from the falls, and the warmth of the rock beneath my feet.

CATHARINE COOPER February! The calendar screams at me as I turn the last page of January and wonder ... what in the world happened to the first month of the year? Granted, the first week I was kayaking on a beach in Baja, embracing resolutions, and the last week, I was communing with whales and whale babies in a different Baja lagoon. I guess what happened to January was sandwiched between Mexican bookends. Lucky me. The middle two weeks of the month were focused on balancing my client's marketing needs with the search for a new president for Laguna College of Art and Design (that's right ... the jewel of a four-year degree-granting college right here in our fair city)

CATHARINE COOPER Desert scents, released by the night's rain, permeate the narrow walls of Ventana Canyon and fill my nostrils with the heady fragrance of wet creosote and paloverde. My friend, Laurie Lee, and I climb rock-laden slopes in soft early light, chattering the full gamut of guys, kids, friends, parents, work and travel. A special topic takes precedent this morning -- the meetings of the preceding day and the formation of the Grand Canyon River Runners Assn.
