Catch Basins at Toroweap, Grand Canyon NP

Friday, March 18, 2011 - Trip to Toroweap with two guests from Russia.

Big, beautiful catch basins one mile from the overlook at Toroweap.
Toroweap Point is in the background.

These pools are called tin-ya-ha by the Paiute Indians. All of the pools had Fairy Shrimp
swimming in them.

After the sun goes down; mammals, birds, and reptiles visit these pools for a drink.
