I made it to Havasupai Falls!

I have not been so active in the blogging world, but I have been to so many adventures that I don’t know where to start. Just so you know that I am still around….Three weeks ago, I was celebrating “winter” in Yellowstone.

I arrived Sunday night from a camp and hike to Havasupai Falls, in the Grand Canyon, Arizona. It was a wonderful experience.

Camp Ebie…Yes, I do tent camping, and you should try. But there is a lodge at the Supai Village.   Early in the morning, you can hear birds chirping.  Our team brought a bear container for our food, just to play safe. That’s the one you see on top of the chopped wood. Jen hanged her canvass duffle bag on the tree (in a rope) only to discover in the morning that some creature had a great bite of it. I saw a lot of squirrels.

imageOh, its paradise here! You can hear the ripples of the river and that puts you to sleep.

image Camped 200 yards away from  Mooney Falls. Slowly but surely, if I can make it, yes you can. Thanks to all 39 of us with our fearless leader John,  for the patience and cheering up.

imageHavasupai is  a Yuman word, which means “people of the blue-green water,” referring the pristine color of famed Havasu Falls and its surrounding pools and waterfalls.

imageSince I did not hike the 8-mile (each way), I took the helicopter down and back to the hilltop, I was the sort-of  greeter of those people coming up from the hike, gave some congratulatory words. Yeah, everyone says the switchback and the last part of the 8 mile uphill ascent was the toughest. I made friends and one of them, his name is David Vidal, if you are a baseball fan. His wife took this picture.

    Well hello you busy lady. Loved hiking to Supai, up was a bit tougher. Did you climb down to the base of Mooney Falls. That water reminds me of the Caribbean.

    Ebie! It is so nice to see your post. Even if you’re not posting lately, I’m glad that you are still out there taking photos. I miss your posts and look forward to hearing about your adventures. I made that trek down to the bottom and back. I was much younger then and in better shape. Take care!
