scenes from… a camping trip

Last month I went on a camping trip with my husband and a few of our friends to Havasu Canyon in Arizona. We road-tripped from San Francisco in a minivan, which was surprisingly comfortable and spacious for the seven of us. After a 14-hour drive we stayed in a small town near the trailhead before waking up with the sun to embark on a 10-mile hike into the canyon. The hike was long but not that hard, and we were rewarded at the end by setting up camp next to a creek a few hundred yards away from one of the canyon’s four waterfalls. We spent the next three days exploring the canyon and swimming in the pools beneath the falls. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been– my photos don’t do it justice! Bottom line: it was an amazing trip. If you are into backpacking and camping, I’d absolutely recommend it.

    Wow! I wish we had something like this here in Australia – or at least in drivable distance from Sydney!Although, it does remind me of Indiana Jones 3, which makes it all that much cooler.
