After 3 hours we reached our vans stopping point. As we gather our lives, to prep for a 10 mile hike, we stopped to enjoy the quiet and each other as the sun sets.
To leave Havasupai, we woke up at 3:30am to hike out of the canyon in complete darkness. The last ten miles of this adventure was completely uphill and a definite internal test. Getting out could only be done if you wanted it to be done. With all of your belongings on your back and your headlamp guiding the way.
We celebrated finishing our hike (at 8:00am) by driving up to Horseshoe bend, to enjoy and lay by another glorious structural anomaly at Phoenix’s edge. Thank you for reading about my adventure!
