HIKING Advice from the Experts

There is nothing like a big hiking trip with a looming deadline to motivate me to get back into prime hiking shape.  To be honest, I really slacked off during the holidays and once I realized my trip to Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon in Utah was a few short weeks away, I knew it was time to get serious.  I needed  to consult experts to help me update my equipment and plan my training schedule.

Havasu Falls plunges into a deep blue-green pool, with Cataract Canyon behind lit by the morning sun, on Havasupai Indian Reservation in the Grand Canyon.

Hiking to see the waterfalls of Havasu was one of the toughest yet  most amazing experiences of my life.  The waterfalls are located deep in the Grand Canyon and are part of the Havasupi Tribal Lands.  Havasupi is  translated as “people of the blue-green water.”  The water is a beautiful turquoise, unlike anything I have ever seen.
