My Havasupai experience

Well, I went last year in the rainy season. I was absolutely unprepared, pack was too heavy had a blister, etc. never been on a trip like this before.

For those that never been there or heard about it, It is a tribe in the north west of the grand canyon.

Anyways, on to the pictures.

To tell you the truth, it's the only trail we saw. Theirs only one way in and out, so I'm not too sure.

the drive is only part of the journey to get there. bust out your walking shoes because it's like a 10 mile hike if i remember correctly.

The drive is like 5 hours, but for some reason it didn't feel that long. We started driving like at 4-5am and we stopped at a little town for breakfast, and we stopped somewhere else for gas and coffe before that.

Its actually 12 miles, with maybe 2-3 miles actually being a hike at a steep angle the rest is pretty flat and easy.

Well, you are in luck. My friend ( the same one) is putting together another trip together for July 10-13.

Hopefully I'll be able to make it if I'm still in my current job.

That sucks, I was in a work accident about two months ago(forklift broke a bone in foot) and I have to say, it sucks. I wanted to go play some wall ball, but obviously can't. Cant even imagine back surgery.

Best advice is carry as least things as possible or pay for the mule ride.

Donkeys are extra, so is if you want to get flown in by chopper. Also Chopper takes you're stuff only 3/4 of the way its also 75 one way and donkeys are 100 if i recall right. Donkeys take it 90% of the way. Depending on what days you go it gets pretty hot up there also, so along with snacks you need plenty of water for the hike it self. If you're native from any tribe you get discount for chopper, donkey and entrance emission. Just FYI

Well that really sucks dudes. Did you camp? My group we all carried our stuff, but non of us camped we all stayed at the lodge. We didnt carry sleeping bags or tents, how ever I did over pack and had the wrong type of bag, it must of been 50-60 lbs and I did develope one blister and I had marks on my shoulders from the straps.

We did camp, Just found out friday I need surgery to fix my back promblem. So being set for 2 weeks from now to put to screws on L6 on my spine to keep from shifting back and forth which is whats casuing my pain. Sucks cause I have to pay 5k out of pocket from the 100k surgery will be, as long as I go back to being able to work out ill be happy. Back pain is no joke!
