Havasu Falls

Havasu Falls

It was an amazing hike (my first hike (solo hike).
It took me 6 hours to reach my campsite. I meet very nice people along the way. I was alone but I felt safe.
The information that was given to me said it was 10 miles to the campsite but it was about 13 or 14 miles.
I carried all my gear with me. I finally reached the village & I had cell service. (Verizon)
I saw the Pony Express!! People at the village are not very friendly.
I was about 1/4 mile from my campsite when I saw the first falls (Navajo Falls), then I finally reached Havasu Falls. It was breath taking - it made my whole trip worth it... and this was just my first day.
The following day (my bday) I hiked to Mooney Falls with some people I met earlier that morning. The hike down to Mooney Falls was out of this world - a couple of tunnels and ladders, chains and I made it down... I spent some time down at the creek and enjoyed the amazing place. The weather was perfect.
Then I hiked back to the campsite. The campsite has several picnic tables and restrooms that are well taken care of; it also has spring water.

I also did this hike with 3 close friends. It was our first "adventure' hike And we have been hiking yearly for years after.
It took us a bit longer to get to camp as we stopped to take pictures at every turn on the way down. And had to jump out of way of pony express as they came galloping through. Agree villagers not that friendly but we accepted we were the news nova ding their town. The havasufalls were incredible and the blue green water of the river was very cold but refreshing. The mooney fall hike was challenging and what a sense of accomplishment going up and down. Then a trip up over havasu falls at night to watch the stars Incredible! We hiked the side canyons near the havasua fall sand then hiked up to bridal veil falls. Swimming against the current to get to the falls was difficult but a thril to jump from the falls and ride the current out. We took a helicopter out....last flight out so got a nice long side trip out....it was a magical experience We went in September and the weather was perfect
