Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon, AZ
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.
