Last weekend, Arizona Highways contributing photographer Jill Richards (you’ll see her beautiful work in our upcoming October issue) and her husband, Scott, spent a few very wet days in Supai. Before hiking out, Richards snapped this image of a very muddy Havasu Falls.

“The water was already a bit cloudy from a small flash flood a few days earlier,” Richards wrote in an email to our editors. “It’s amazing what a little bit of rain can do to that canyon.”

And how. It’s certainly a far cry from those familiar turquoise waters we know and love to photograph.

Below are a few additional photographs from Richards’ adventure:

  1. Although the presence of the iconic blue green waters of Havasu Falls was not available due to the rains, Havasupai is always beautiful.
