A Look into Havasupai

It’s May 3, 2016. This is my 22nd trip around the sun, and what a perfect birthday week it has been.

We arrived back in Golden, CO yesterday and I believe our souls are full and humble. Supai, AZ is like nothing else in this country. I have plenty of pictures to show but honestly, it does no where near the justice of what we saw with our own eyes.

My feet are blistered, face is burnt, and muscles are weak. Oh, but it was so worth it. The trek was 10 miles total; from the top of the Grand Canyon to our campground. But between those two, you will find multiple, turquoise-blue waterfalls, the Havasupai tribe, stray dogs begging for snacks, and herds of horses trekking up and down the canyon. Continue reading

Nature’s Revival

It’s been a slow start to the morning in our household. It’s a moon day for me – I’m off work, I’m still in my PJs, and my coffee isn’t quite finished.

It’s a beautiful renaissance of a time, where we are all awakening from the hibernation of winter – ready to work on ourselves and achieve new goals for the year that lies ahead. It’s my favorite time of the year because the energy is strong & positive.

Chimney Gulch / Lookout Mountain Trail

I went on my first heavy hike of the season! With Kolin being at work, Max & I were feelin’ up to the task of a 9 mile hike (there & back), 2,000 elevation gain of Lookout Mountain. It was perfect weather & hardly anyone on the  trail. The hike up was filled with stopping at every creek crossing for Max to take a dip, having butterflies land on my arm, seeing my first ginormous BULL SNAKE, and realizing how out of shape I still am. Ah, but was it worth it. Continue reading
