Arizona's Havasupai Tribe is ready to welcome back tourists after months spent repairing trails and clearing debris from a flood that swept through their reservation and campground last summer. 

Tribal vice chairman Matthew Putesoy says the reservation deep in a gorge off the south side of the Grand Canyon plans to reopen to visitors on Monday (June 1), according to the Associated Press

Water from a summer thunderstorm surged through the canyon in mid-August, forcing the evacuations of hundreds of residents and tourists. Tribal members soon returned, but the reservation remained closed to tourists. 

The area is best known for its towering blue-green waterfalls. 

Those who hope to travel there might have to wait a while. Reservations at the lodge and campground are booked through mid-July.
