The Navajo Nation Council have voted down plans to develop the Grand Canyon at the confluence of the Colorado Rivers, with both economic and environmental concerns. The proposed entertainment complex included a 1.4 mile gondola, elevated walkway, shops, hotels and restaurants. While sacred land and wildlife are temporarily safe from commercial development, garbage and pollution, this project will surely be reevaluated in the future. Trump has also proposed lifting Obama's ban on uranium mining in the canyon's watershed. I was completely awestruck by the beauty and expanse of the Grand Canyon and can't imagine it becoming another Niagara Falls, nor can I imagine contaminating the only water source of the Havasupai. As visitors and locals, we have to work together in conservation efforts #savetheconfluence

Got to see something pretty special with some really cool people. Words can't describe how blue that water is. #savetheconfluence #grandcanyon #iloveaz

The Little Colorado River just above the confluence with the Colorado River. Like the confluence at Havasu Creek, the confluence at the LCR is a spot that I had always wanted to see. It is such a defining feature in Grand Canyon and a convergence of two massive northern Arizona geographic features. So cool to finally see it while we were on the river! •

Lost this wonderful @huppybar hat at mile 250 something trying to bodysurf a hole. You served me well hat. .

On another note, I am so exstatic that where this photo was taken will not be developed into an amusement park, a travesty. It is to special and sacred for that.

#TakeActionRightNow 💪 #TakeCareEarth 🌎 @brambleoutdoor - The week of November 2, the Navajo Council voted to stop the Grand Canyon Escalade project, a proposal to develop a tram into the heart of the Grand Canyon. This is a huge victory. Thanks to the 65,000 + every day activists who voiced their opposition to the proposal, and to all those on the front lines of the #savetheconfluence movement.
Let us celebrate, but not stop fighting for our public lands.

This has been one of the best months of my life, and something I simply can’t encompass in a single post so a few pictures will have to do it justice, for now.... Can’t wait to be back next year!

#TBT to 2016’s fall adventure to the confluence of the Colorado and the Little Colorado River in the Grand Canyon. While many wild spaces are under attack there was some good news recently that the proposed gondola from the rim to this spot was voted down. 📸 @matthelmeid #protectourpubliclands @grandcanyonnps @patagonia #backpacking #hiking #savetheconfluence

A gondola development, The Grand Escalade, was proposed to be constructed at this location but last night, in a long, passionate Navajo Tribal Council meeting, the tribe voted down the project which was proposed on their land, citing an array of economic, security and environmental concerns with the project. The grassroots opposition to the tram was led by a group of predominantly Navajo women, who want economic growth but “not there”, saying they don't want “a Disney-style development at our sacred places."

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
