Havasupai 2010

I had blast at Havasupai last weekend. It was soooo gorgeous! It was my first time, and everyone kept saying how it used to be so beautiful before the floods. I sat and looked around and wondered how it could get any more beautiful than what I was looking at right then. Absolutely loved it! We carried our packs in, which wasn't too bad, and camped between 2 rivers, which was the perfect soundtrack at night. So peaceful. On the way down I stayed with Cat and we talked for 4 straight hours. Love that girl! We have been friends since we were 14, and we don't spend nearly enough time together anymore. It was so nice to catch up. I brought my ipod thinking I might want some music, but didn't turn it on until the switchbacks on the way out. And if my life were a movie, the soundtrack couldn't have been more perfect. As I saw the switchbacks about a 1/2 mile away, I turned it on to my running playlist thinking I might need some motivation... and sure enough, as I took the first step up those evil, evil switchbacks, carrying my 30 lb pack, thinking I might die, Sherry Baby by the 4 Seasons came on! Who can't keep going when their theme song comes on?! It may have well been the Rocky theme! It was followed my The Middle by Jimmy Eat World, and that also kept me going. When I got to the top, we had left gatorade in ice in the car, and it was all slushy and cold, and may have been the best thing I have ever tasted!

Me and my lesbian shoes! hahahaha

We did this every time we got to a new fall... We all ran into it full-speed, and then ran out because it was sooooo cold! Here is our baywatch shot!!
Yeah, we are TUFF!
