Feeling chilly where you are? Our JanFeb 2019 issue has this road trip, hike and helicopter adventure feature by #TysonHugie to #HavasuFalls in the bottom of the #GrandCanyon . The rim of the Canyon, at about 7000 feet above sea level (and not far from #ArizonaSnowBowl ski area) gets plenty wintery, but it's generally 20-30 degrees warmer (F) at the bottom. Looks nice, doesn't it!

This last week my best friend @lagunajessie and I embarked on an adventure of a lifetime and our first official back packing trip. It took us a year of planning to prepare but it was something that was pretty high on our bucket list. With some advice from a friend who had previously visited this along with hours upon hours of research we managed to pull it off. It was physically the hardest thing we have ever done especially the last mile out on the switchbacks where you're not sure if you are going to cry or throw up but giving up is not an option and there is no back up plan. Going in we realized we probably should have attempted something on a smaller scale first but I'm kind of an "all in" person so we just went for it. We hiked 37 miles in 3 days and 2 nights carrying 30lb packs. Seeing this place was nothing less than awe inspiring. Of all the beautiful falls we saw on this adventure Havasu was my personal favorite. We were lucky enough to have visited during a slower part of the season and were able to peacefully enjoy God's amazing creation. I'm thankful to have had my best friend by my side for another epic adventure. We survived with only a couple pulled muscles, a handful of blisters and bruises, muscles so sore we hobbled for days after, and the pride of "we fucking did it". I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us. ♡
New Navajo Falls - "Until the August 2008 flooding, Navajo Falls was the first prominent waterfall in the canyon. They were named after an old Supai chief. It was located 1.25 miles (2 km) from Supai and is accessed from a trail located on the left side (right side when heading upstream) of the main trail. This side trail leads down to the creek, where there is a crude bridge that crosses over the creek. The trail then leads back into the trees, where the main pool and falls were located. The pool was popular for its seclusion and its ease to swimmers. The falls were approximately 70 feet (21 m) tall and consisted of separate sets of water chutes, the main one located on the right side where the water cascaded down the canyon hill. To the left of the main chute there were other smaller ones that were steeper and more vertical. There were a few places that are viable for cliff jumping, although caution was necessary."
I had a blast out here in Supai! We went on a 18 mile hike to reach these beautiful falls in the Grand Canyon! This was a trip of a life time! Thank you to @nonstophomes and @darlenebardales for inviting me! Love you guys! Thank you to @rayadamyk for showing us an amazing time especially at Mooney Falls! 😁 Thank you!
In a society full of hustle & bustle 24/7, don’t forget to stop & be grateful. 🙌🏼 Gratitude is something I’ve learned to practice more and more since starting an online business. When I first got started online I was lost and didn’t really know what I was doing (but isn’t that with everything in life?!) Now, over a year into everything, I’m extremely grateful for everything that life throws at me.
I’m grateful for finding an online group of people who took me in & taught me everything.
I’m grateful to now be able to show people THERE IS A WAY ONLINE.
I’m grateful for my house in Vegas.
I’m grateful for this hammock in the photo.
I’m grateful for a career that enables me to set my own schedule so I can visit beautiful places like this.
Do you practice gratitude? What are you grateful for?
"Mooney Falls is the fourth main waterfall in the canyon. It is named after D. W. "James" Mooney, a miner, who in 1882, according to his companions,decided to mine the area near Havasu Falls for minerals. The group then decided to try Mooney Falls. One of his companions was injured, so James Mooney decided to try to climb up the falls with his companion tied to his back, and subsequently fell to his death. The Falls are located 2.25 miles (3.6 km) from Supai, just past the campgrounds. The trail leads to the top of the falls, where there is a lookout/photograph area that overlooks the 210-foot (64 m) canyon wall that the waterfall cascades over. In order to gain access to the bottom of the falls and its pool, a very rugged and dangerous descent is required. Extreme care and discretion for the following portion is required; it is highly exposed and should not be attempted when the weather and/or conditions are not suitable." ⛏️ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Havasu_Creek#Mooney_Falls
