Havasupai!

A couple of weekends ago I went to Havasupai, in the Grand Canyon. The opportunity came up at the last minute, and I jumped on it, since I've been wanting to go there for years. I wasn't disappointed. I think you can see why.

For more pictures, see:


Havasu Canyon, with the amazing Colorado Plateau above.


Lots of people pay to have their gear packed in by mule, the same way that mail is delivered to Supai. Not us! We hiked the 10 miles in with 35-pound packs.


Lush meadow in the bottom of a dry desert.


Joel making the tricky climb down to the bottom of Mooney Falls. You have to climb some vertical rock (protected by chains) to get there.


Navajo Falls made me really excited.


120-foot Havasu Falls.


One of the many dogs running around.


How would you like to live here?

End of a long hike out—well worth the trip!

Bruce! I just found your blog! I love it when I come across blogs of friends. Now we can be blogging friends, too. Anyway, this trip looks awesome, and I am slightly jealous. Maybe we need to get a group together and plan an amazing trip like this, since we are both now partying it up in the bay area!
