When we left you at the end of our last blog post, we had just settled down in our two person pup tent for our first night of camping in the Havasupai section of the Grand Canyon (Southwest part of the canyon). We had a wonderful night’s sleep, listening to tree frogs croaking and other wilderness sounds as we dropped off to sleep. Awakening in the morning, we prepared for what hadbeen promised as a “Beach Day” at a nearby waterfall/swimming pool area, Havasu Falls. After a hearty breakfast, we hiked the short distance and frolicked in the water most of the day. It was good to rest our legs and relax in this paradise.

As you can see, we were all super relaxed as we swam, sunbathed and jumped off cliffs all day. It was hard to believe after our twelve mile arduous hike in the previous day. Below you can see Red Fox frolicking in the water, in the first two photos.

Returning to camp that night, we were amazed at the recovery we had made from the exhaustion of the day before. We would now have our nightly group dinner to which different groups were assigned each night to help prepare it. And then the next day would be a vigorous hike to two different waterfalls in what would wind up being about an eight mile, eight hour hike with swimming breaks and cooling off periods, as we forded streams.
