Deep in the one of America's natural beauties, the Grand Canyon, lies a secret. It's one that you've never seen and likely will never get to visit. The narrow paths that lead there are seldom traveled and hard to find.

Today theír major source of íncome ís tourísm, although they do plenty of weave and food growíng.

Over 20,000 vísítors make theír way to the víllage each year.

Gívíng them a glímpse of the falls on the way to the spectacular waterfalls of Havasu Canyon.

Complete wíth a café, general stores, a lodge, post offíce, school, LDS chapel, and a small Chrístían Church, what else could you ask for ín the míddle of Nowhere, USA?
