House Rock, House Rock Valley, Arizona USA
House Rock Valley, named after this distinctive house built under a huge rock, is located at the eastern end of the Grand Canyon, above the famous Marble Canyon. Just a few miles from Lee’s Ferry, this distinctive location was a waystop for travelers when the roads were unpaved and there were few such places to stop. Now a tourist curiosity, the area may have received its name from the expeditions led by Major John Wesley Powell in 1872. Although a wagon road existed through the valley to Lee’s Ferry, a road was not constructed until Navajo Bridge was built in 1929. The north boundary of the valley is formed by the Vermilion Cliffs. There is a sizable herd of buffalo in the valley, but viewing the herd requires a long drive on an unimproved dirt road. The Valley lies at almost 7000 feet above sea level and can be very cold in the winter and very hot in the summer.

    That was where the movie, Buffalo Bill, was shot in 1944, with Joel McCrea. I saw the movie when it first came out, in April, 1944, always remembered some parts of it, and finally got to see it again on July 22, 2014. Turner Classic Movies showed it.

    More About USA

    The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
