The confluence of Havasu Creek with the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon National Park.

The confluence of Havasu Creek with the Colorado River (river mile 157) is a popular place for boaters to stop and admire the striking blue-green water of Havasu Creek. The turquoise color is caused by water with a high mineral content. At the point where the blue creek meets the turbid Colorado river there often appears a definite break.
