Still one of my all-time favorite places is that magical turquoise water flowing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. ✨ .
The best part about this hike is that you have to work to get there. You have to hike the 12 miles down with all your gear, and when you do, you’re greeted by the beauty that is #supai. •
Sure, you could cheat and take the helicopter in and out for a heavy price, but you won’t appreciate it nearly as much. And sure, you could pay for a mule or horse to take your packs down — but if you do, you need to look those poor animals in the face and tell them you are SORRY. Those animals are treated terribly and it pains me that I had to just stand there while they were pushed to their breaking points. .
It’s eye opening. Yes, #havasupai is beautiful and magical... but also please be aware that if you choose to have your packs carried down you’re contributing to these animal’s demise. Don’t be lazy. Work for it. Carry your own damn packs... please. 🙃 🎒 #beaware
