Aside from making jewelry, traveling has been one of things I enjoy doing most. Exploring the natural beauty of this world is something that you can never put a price on. The experiences and memories are unforgettable and I truly believe traveling has a unique way of bringing people together.
Exactly a year ago today, my boyfriend Chris, and our friends Gina and Sean embarked on one of the most challenging hikes we have ever experienced and it was certainly worth it. Havasupai Falls is one of the most breathtaking places in the world, filled with turquoise blue water, lavishing water falls, starry nights and is known to be the heart of the Grand Canyon.
We backpacked in from the Hilltop and hiked about 10 miles to get to campground. We hiked everyday, and I would say we came out of this hiking at about a total 60 miles. During this time of year it was a bit colder and we slept through 40 degree nights, thankfully we invested in ultra warm and comfortable mummy sleeping bags. Most of what we ate were freeze dried foods with our Jet Boil, and surprisingly freeze dried foods actually tastes quite amazing in my book! And that FRY bread though, if you ever go here, it's definitely something you need to try. We visited 4 out of the 5 waterfalls, Havasu Falls, Mooney Falls, Navajo Falls and Beaver Falls. All and all this place is absolutely magical, and we are definitely coming back there again. Dreaming...
