Weekend Recap - Havasu Falls

Happy Monday - I'm exhausted. Everything below my neck hurts a little! This weekend we hiked to the beautiful Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon, AZ.

The Supai Indians live in the bottom of the Canyon and allow crazy backpackers like myself to hike down across their land and camp out near the falls. You guys- SO, SO beautiful!


I told you!

We left Phoenix around 2pm on Friday afternoon and traveled about 250 miles into the middle of nowhere to camp for a Saturday morning departure.

This was our view for dinner:

We actually camped out in the back of the SUV - air mattress and all!

Our view when we woke up on Saturday morning! LOL

We hit the trail with our HEAVY backpacks (25-30 lbs) and made our way 10 miles down into the canyon to reach the falls. We set up our tent and then enjoyed the beautiful water. We napped. Took pictures and just relaxed. It is so crazy to think about this beautiful oasis being in the middle of the desert. I highly recommend a visit if you find yourself in AZ. Hey - you can even helicopter in or ride a mule! If you want to be all fancy like that! :)

For now, picture overload:
