Hiking to Havasupai

There hasn't been a lot of time to create things this past week because of a fantastic trip to Havasupai in the Grand Canyon.

My husband and I went with three other couples for a two night stay in the Grand Canyon. We hiked in eleven miles last Thursday and then hiked out on Saturday.

We camped right by the water at the Havasupai campsite. Although I did wake up a lot in the night, it was still so relaxing to hear the water running next to us all night. The campsite was so beautiful. The cool stream was pretty perfect for a long foot soak after we first arrived at camp.

We spent the day on Friday exploring the waterfalls. We swam and relaxed. It really did feel like paradise there. I hope to go back again someday!

The only questionable part of the day was when we went to Mooney Falls and discovered that the only route for getting there involved climbing down a steep face of a wet cliff while holding onto chains. Glad I didn't know about that or I may not have been able to sleep at all the night before!

I only used my phone for pictures on this trip because we were packing in all of our food, tent, clothes, etc. and there just wasn't room in the pack for a camera too. Lucky a couple others in our group were staying at a lodge a couple miles from the campsite and they had space for a "real" camera and they took lots of photos.

Once I have the photos, I'm thinking this trip needs a mini book put together which will mainly focus on the photos.

I'm so thankful for all of our friends and family who helped with our kids while we were away. It's a bit stressful being completely out of touch with our kids, but I knew they were in good hands.
