This is a picture of our group that went the first time, a YEAR ago! Julia, Brett, i think we've mastered this trek...
Second trip down. Things that were different from the first one: we're tanner. Julia and Brett didn't acquire as many blisters on their feet. Brett and I were dating 2nd time around (it only took how many years?? :). We hiked both in and out in the dark so we didn't hit the HOT, SWEATY times of the day.
On our way down the hike..
Our favorite falls. Navajo.
Havasu falls is pictured below. This is the first site of water you see when entering into the oasis of lush green trees and gushing waterfalls after hiking approximately 11 miles down some pretty rough terrain. This was the second year I've done this and was able to repeat the trip with Julia and Brett again!
Annie jumping off a perilous fall...the group favorite actually.
Julia braving that same fall...you have to climb down the first part of the waterfall to get to the ledge to jump off. I was very impressed with your bravery sister! I think having Brett up there as a coach helped her along the way a little bit...
The Gals! FEARLESS! FREAKING AWESOME!!!
You'd think we had enough just hiking in the 11 miles into camp from the cars but we decided to hike another 5 down to Beaver falls. It was an interesting hike to the falls, but it was worth it after seeing the beautiful waterfalls. It was a 55 foot jump to go off of, only Brett and one other guy in our group brave enough to jump off it... the rest of us cheered them on and silently wished we had the guts to go off it as well...
A pic Brett took of one of the cooler falls right before it got dark.
