Logan and I had an amazing time in Havasupai Arizona. It's near the grand canyon and is probably the most beautiful place I've ever seen. Neither words nor pictures can hardly describe how beautiful it truly was. It was a great experience. I'll share a little about what it was like.
Wednesday all packed and ready to go, Logan got off work, his Dad and brother Isaac came from Idaho to pick us up and drive the 11 hour drive to "the hilltop" where we would begin our adventure.
We got to experience the joys of nature from the get go. Once we reached the hilltop at 1:00 a.m. we pulled out a tarp, some sleeping pads and a sleeping bag and slept until 4:30, walked 11.5 miles, saw the most beautiful waterfalls, sweat like none other, set up camp and ate some lunch, we went on a little hike to go see some more falls and explore a little. Holy beautiful. Let me tell ya! Seriously, I was just in awe the WHOLE time. It was amazing!
Saturday we got up and got ready to go on another hike. The sun was shining and we left our campground excited to see more beautiful nature. We hiked through the river, jumped off waterfalls and climbed big rocks in order to get to where we were wanting to go.
We finally got to the cliffs 3 miles later and started jumping off. Right after I finally got the guts to jump, while standing in the water, it started to rain. Pretty quick it was raining HARD. The wind picked up and we heard thunder from all directions. There was a storm coming in, but not just a regular storm, we were caught in the middle of a flash flood! It was crazy! Climbing back up the cliff was a little difficult because the rocks were now slippery from water and mud, plus we had rain pouring on us, but eventually we made it to the top and found shelter under another big rock. While we were sitting there it was so cool to see mother nature work. New waterfalls started forming ALL OVER the cliff walls, the water once a bright blue was now a muddy brown. We sat there in the rock for probably 30-40 minutes waiting for the storm to pass. It finally let up a bit and we were able to safely walk back to camp. What an adventure!!!
It was great to just get away from the world for a while and enjoy some of the most beautiful creations our Father has given us. We are so blessed! I loved everything about this trip! (Except the part where we had to come home.)
I hope someday you all have the opportunity to go and see what I mean! It's great...so great! We loved it!
