There is nothing better than a road trip with great friends to adventure in new places!  This time around we decided to venture deep in to the Arizona desert in search of the legendary Havasupai Falls…

Sunset soliloquy. The Grand Canyon sure is!

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 04

The beginning of our 10 mile hike through the desert. We drove in at 4AM after making a wrong turn on the way to the trailhead, and we set off on the trail at 5:30AM. No sleep is always a great way to start a journey through the desert!

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 23

Don’t look down.

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 24

Adventuring down river took us to more waterfalls.

Super fun jumping into this lil’ waterfall.

Sometimes I doubt your commitment to Sparklemotion.

The way in is the way out. Sketchy ladders.

The last push out of the canyon.

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 36

Most people that visit Havasupai have the local Indian tribe drag all their crap down to the campsites and back out again. Some even get their stuff heli lifted. For us, being self supported was just part of the fun.

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 56

The whole crew stoked to be back at the cars again. Boy my feet hurt!

AVALON7 ADVENTURE HAVASUPAI - 57

I’m not sure why some people travel into pristine places and then decide to just throw their trash on the ground. I decided to be Futurepositiv and pick it up for them.
