One of our favorite places to fly over - the majestic Grand Canyon. We were pleased to see a couple weeks ago that the Navajo Nation Council voted down the mega resort Grand Canyon Escalade proposal. The decisive 16-2 vote came after several hours of debate. It also was the culmination of seven gut-wrenching years of opposition by Save the Confluence families and Navajo citizens, who joined Hopi, Zuni, and Acoma leaders on Tuesday, October 31, to witness the dramatic decision to kill the Escalade bill. @grandcanyontrust #nps #publiclands #FindYourPark #grandcanyon #savetheconfluence

I’ve been supporting #SavetheConfluence for the past five years in their efforts to stop the Grand Canyon Escalade project, an ill-conceived developer’s fantasy that was an insult to the heritage of the #Navajo, #Hopi and #Zuni people and all the rest of us. The plan, a tram from the East Rim of the canyon down to the #confluence of the Little Colorado River and main Colorado River, along with restaurant, gift shop, boardwalk and other tacky tourist treats, would have brought thousands of people a day down to one of the most spiritual, remote and pristine places left.

Last week the Navajo Nation Main Council met and in a final vote did a thumbs down on the project in a stunning 16-2 rebuke. And in a show of true cultural sensitivity, the developer flipped the Council the bird on his way out the door. Good riddance. You wanna get to this spot you go by boat or by foot. .

- Вот звёздное небо! Что видно на нём?
- Звёзды там светят далёким огнём!
- Только ли звёзды на небе сияют?
- Нет! Среди звёзд там планеты блуждают!
- Как так блуждают? Дороги не знают?
- Нет! Это кажется, будто блуждают!
Все они - Солнца большая семья.
И под влияньем его притяжения
Вечно творят круговые движения!
И вместе с ними планета моя -
Та, что зовётся планетой "Земля",
Та, на которой живём ты и я!

“At a special session the Navajo Council rejected a proposal from the Confluence Partners, who wanted to bring 10,000 Tourists per day to an area containing sacred sites, grazing land, and traditional homelands to hundreds of Navajo families. The developers wanted to build a resort that would include a gondola tram that collided into the confluence of the Colorado and little Colorado river’s in Grand Canyon national Park. Ultimately the council voted 16–2 to kill the measure.” Congratulations and many thanks to everyone that fought for seven years to kill this monstrosity. 🙏 photo by STC.

#savetheconfluence | The project to build a tourist attraction on the exact spot where I took this photo has been stopped in its tracks. The battle may come again, but for now I’m thankful! 🙏🏼 #ColoradoRiver #GrandCanyon #freetheColorado #21dayswet

This week, the Navajo Nation Council voted against legislation that would have paved the way for a tramway and resort to be built in the heart of the Grand Canyon. Thank you to all of the #savetheconfluence families, conservation organizations and passionate individuals who helped lead the powerful grassroots effort to save this place.

The Confluence of the Little Colorado River and the Colorado is now safe from a mega development plan, the Navajo Tribal Government voted against moving forward with a tramway and mega shop /hotel shopping mall developments construction. I am so thankful this sacred site will stay untouched by man development hands and sheep headers, medicine men and others may experience The majestic beauty of this place just as it always has been. #protectthesaceed #savetheconfluence
