As you may know, developers have proposed the construction of a gondola to the bottom of the Grand Canyon at the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers. It would essentially be an enormous conveyor belt delivering 10,000 tourists DAILY to this fragile ecosystem that is considered sacred by Navajo, Hopi, and other native peoples.
I fully understand why people who can't or won't ever access the heart of the Canyon as a river-runner or hiker would love to experience this incredible place first hand, but sometimes it is its very remoteness and the fact that it cannot be easily accessed that make a place so special and alluring.
Today is the final day to submit comments and ask the Navajo Tribal Council to oppose this construction. It only takes a few seconds to add your name. Follow the link in our profile. Thank you!
