About Coconino County

About Coconino County

Encompassing 18,661 square miles, Coconino County, Arizona, is the second largest county in the U.S. but one of the least populated. Our county includes Grand Canyon National Park, the Navajo, Havasupai, Hualapai and Hopi Indian Reservations, and the largest contiguous ponderosa pine forest in the world. Elevations range from 2,000 feet above sea level along the Colorado River to 12,633 feet at the summit of Mt. Humphreys in Flagstaff.

More on the Havasupai Flood

I was just informed about a website dedicated to the Havasupai flood. There, you can visit links to people's personal accounts, and view photos and slideshows. Having been up top on the rim the whole time, I personally didn't have any idea what it was like at the bottom. I'd hear bits and pieces and have to extrapolate and imagine the rest. But visit http://www.havasupaiflood.com to get the real scoop you can't get from the news media. Some great before-and-after photos too. Thank you Josh Kaggie for putting the site together and informing me about it.

Also, on another note, in yesterday's post I said I could just feel my little pager wanting to sing again. Well, it did. Another rescue on Mt. Elden in the "Waterfall" area, which seems to be a relatively common occurance. The call-out was for a technical rescue, but no request was made for additional ground-pounder help carrying tech gear up the mountain, as they did earlier this month. So my husband and I finished our sushi dinner and I took the night off. There's always next time....
