The Grand Canyon Hike-Part Three



After our first day in Havasupai Canyon, during which we relaxed at the Havasu Falls, we had a delicious group dinner and another wonderful night sleeping in our tent, under the stars. In this remote area, with no human created light at night, there are so many stars that you almost can’t believe what you are seeing. The next day, which was Thursday, May 4, our hiking leader, Bill Furey, had planned a vigorous 8 mile hike, one which would take us down steep ladders with chains embedded in the cliff for hand-holds, to another beautiful waterfall with a swimming hole. After ensuring that everyone made it down safely and some picture taking time, we moved forward towards another waterfall about three miles away. To get there we would hike through a beautiful canyon covered with wild grapevines, wade across streams, and then arrive at Beaver Falls.

Here you will see some of the best photos and a few video clips-
