Havasupai!!!

Havasupaii Falls in the Grand Canyon was one of the most beautiful things we have ever seen.  It was such an awesome trip.  You have to hike about 8 miles into the Grand Canyon, we stayed for 3 days then hiked out.  We went just 3 weeks after Dave had back surgery😵.  You have to schedule to get into the lodge way in advance when we didn't know Dave was gonna have back surgery, but he was a trooper and still went.  With that said he got the luxury of flying in and out in a helicopter while the rest of us made the grueling hike.  It was about 3 miles hike down and then the hardest part was the 5 miles flat hike on sand and tiny pebbles in the sun😥.  Even though the lodge was a dump we were SO happy to have an air conditioned room and a shower!







We went with our really good friends Robby, Alisa, Brandi and Jason.
The first day we just hiked to the 2 smaller falls.  Seriously the prettiest blue water you have ever seen.




Just hangin out on a picnic table in the middle of the river by the falls.

Starting off with the little falls jump:)










Hiking under the falls.
And we loved pink shorts dude!






This was kinda a crazy hike, through this little cave and was so steep we had to hold on to chains.  Not sure how Dave did it but he did!














The next "level" jump/drop, off a rope swing over a waterfall.











Look at that rock and moss and waterfall behind us!😮  SOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!





Our fun group!


This was the craziest/scarriest part of the whole trip.  We swam UNDER that waterfall, we had to swim down and UNDER a wall that then came up into a little cave.  It was one of the scarier things I've ever done!


And onto the motherload waterfall!!









There I gooooooo

This is us waking up at 4am to hike out before it got too hot.

The last little bit hiking out!  It was hard!

Eating at the lodge.  They actually had pretty good food.



Pictures are a little out of order but this is us the first day ready to hike in while Dave went and caught the helicopter.





We had the best time!  This will be one of our coolest trips ever made!
