We're nearing the end of July. You may yet have your big summer getaway coming, but just in case you don't and you need a few minutes of daredevil outdoor fun, we're encouraging you to watch this clip of cliff diving at the Havasupai Indian Reservation in the Grand Canyon.

Yes, it's all done to what sounds like Euro club music, but don't let that distract you from the very cool jumps, flips and dives these rock-climbers are taking into the waters of Havasu Canyon.

And yes, that's what the water looks like. "Havasupai" translates to English as "people of the blue-green waters," according to the area's National Park Service page. And as you can see, that's no misnomer, and it should be little wonder that the waters attract so many visitors every year.

The video's director, Devin Graham, posts colorful videos of beautiful places the world over, so if you need more of an online vacation than this, check out his YouTube page.
