Mooney Falls in the Havasupai Indian Reservation in Arizona

There are several beautiful waterfalls that can be found in the Havasupai Indian Reservation in the state of Arizona. One of these is the Mooney Falls, the fourth primary waterfall in the canyon that’s named after a miner who tried to save an injured companion by tying the man behind his back while they try to climb up the falls, but unfortunately the two men died. The miner was D.W.  James Mooney.

To get to the bottom part of the falls, you need to go through a rugged and complicated descent that’s not ideal for novice hikers. It’s safer to enjoy the view from the lookout and photograph area somewhere at the top of the falls.
