Visual Expectations of Havasupai, AZ

It’s sad that it’s taken me a month to post about this place (I blame school & work), but in actuality, pictures don’t really do this place justice.

Havasupai, Arizona.

It’s either a vast art gallery of nature’s work or a detail of our ultimate creator’s great masterpiece (where ever your beliefs lie).

Havasupai is a Native American Reservation engulfed within the magnificent Grand Canyon. To preserve its natural beauty and serenity, each year the Supai tribe releases a limited amount of permits to eager travelers, making it a privilege to visit. Adventurers hike 10+ miles through rough terrain, winding switchbacks, caves and gorges to find an oasis of water falls within its ravines. Rather than write about my getaway (which is something I usually do), I’ve compiled some of my favorite photos that does all the talking.

As I said before, pictures are not enough. This experience had humbled me and opened my eyes to the beauty our “own backyard” has to offer.

Till’ the next adventure!
