Arizona Trip part 2

On Tuesday we went to the falls. There are 4 main falls the first is New Navajo falls, the second is Havaus falls, the third is Mooney falls and the last is Beaver falls then you would come to the Colorado river (ps. we could not get there due to a fence). Mooney is the tallest of all the falls, to reach the bottom of Mooney, you have to traverse and descend down chains, ladders and a cliff staircase 200 feet down the side of a canyon wall/cliff. It was definitely one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I could have spent days taking pictures of the falls and it could not do justice to its beauty. It was again a great day hiking and sightseeing and went by too fast.

We left the next day at 6am trying to beat the sun and hike out of the canyon. All in all it was an amazing hike!  We went back to the Wallace’s house to rest after eating at the Roadkill café.

The next day we went on another excursion  near the little town of Cleator, which had a little general store. There we explored an old gold mine in the side of a mountain and had fun riding in the Blazer with Uncle Russel and all the other young people. We left Saturday morning and got home to several inches of snow in cold PA. But that could not take away from the great time we had in sunny AZ! 

Coming home to a welcome home sign is always the best!


Arizona Trip Part 1

You all are probably wondering why we went to AZ, well because Aunt Elizabeth planned a trip to Havasupai Falls at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.     

On March 29th Mom, Lincoln, Bethany (Zoe could not come because of work) and I packed our bags and left for Arizona. We first visited Uncle Arnie, Aunt Rachel, Chloe, Grace, Hadassah, Enoch, and Lillianna for 3 days and had a great time. 

On April 1st Uncle Russell, Aunt Elizabeth and their family and guest picked up Papa. Then we met up with them at Olive Garden to have lunch. We then traveled to Uncle Russell and Aunt Elizabeth’s house for a few days. We did take a little hike on Saturday with the many young people that were staying at their house and had a blast. On Sunday we went to church and Monday we left to go to the Grand Canyon. On Monday morning we began the 9 mile hike down to the HavasupaIndian Reservation (the only way to get there is to hike or ride a horse or helicopter) we arrived mid-afternoon and got our rooms at the lodge. We then just rested the rest of the day.                             There will be a 2 part coming soon!
