How to Get to Havasu Falls during your Grand Canyon Adventure

The Havasupai Trail is one of the most picturesque trekking activities that you must have during your trip to the Grand Canyon. Apart from visiting the most popular attractions of the Grand Canyon, a side trip to Grand Canyon’s Garden of Eden is truly a must.

A round trip to Havasu Falls is over 20 miles. The level of difficulty when hiking or trekking will depend on what time of year you plan to schedule your trip. Ideally, you need to schedule a trip to Havasupai during spring, when temperatures do not soar 100 degrees, and the waters are kept at a constant 72 degrees.

The Indian Reservation where Havasu Falls is located is closed during winter. There are some who still venture to Havasupai Indian Reserve during monsoon season, but if you are a beginner, you may want to avoid these months at all costs. Flash floods and heavy rains make the trail difficult and challenging not only for amateurs but for veterans as well.

 The Havasu trail can take up at least two days. If you want to explore and learn about the site, it’s always best to follow the two-day itinerary set by tour guides.

The ten-mile trek starts at Hualapai Hilltop. Make sure to pack all your bare necessities as there are no stores or shops for a few miles ahead.

One-way hike to Havasu falls will mostly take up seven hours. Be sure to start trekking in the early hours of the morning to avoid getting burned by the sun. Bring a gallon of water with you, as you will most likely reach halfway the trail with the sun out already. You can also reserve pack mules and horses to make your trekking more comfortable.

The trail includes dramatic sandstone precipice and switchback cuts into the cliff. After a mile of walking, you’ve already descended 2,000 feet from your starting point. The next few miles consist of dry and hot walk along trails that drop through the layers of red sandstone. You will then reach Havasu Canyon after 8 miles of trekking. You know that you have arrived at your destination once you set foot at Havasu Springs.

It’s Time For Me To Get A Round Of Auto Insurance Quotes

It’s time for me to get a round of auto insurance quotes. I’m kind of looking forward to it this time, as I’m expecting a huge drop in my rates (really looking into getting the cheapest auto insurance). For starters, both my teenagers finally have their own cars and policies, so I’m going to be dropping them off my coverage. Secondly, I now work from home, so my mileage has dropped considerably.

I’m hoping the combination of the two is going to mean that I get some seriously lower auto insurance quotes. I’m pretty sure I’m just going to pay for a full policy in advance this time instead of going with monthly installments. Given those installment fees, that should save me $36 alone over the next year. That’s another Christmas present under the tree.

Still, I won’t just choose a policy based on the price. The coverage has to be enough and I’d like a few perks too. I want to know that I’m covered when I drive a rental car, so I don’t have to pay for their insurance package. I also want roadside assistance in both my own car and rental cars when I travel.

One thing I might also look into finally while making this round of collecting auto insurance quotes is bundling policies. I currently have a renter’s insurance policy, a life insurance policy, a policy on my boat, and another on my motorcycle. Many of these providers also cover cars, I will ask if there is any savings to be had by combining any of these together.

I’d combine policies with my husband, but he’s got a few tickets and points still on her record, and I have no intention of paying extra for his misdeeds. I won’t even ride as his passenger most of the time.

Find Out Why People Are Making The Trek To Havasupai Falls

Think of the greatest vacation you’ve ever had, and I’m going to tell you how the Grand Canyon can beat it, hands down. What did you come up with? If I had to pick the greatest vacation I ever had, there are several in the running. I guess I would pick my trips to Minute Maid Park in Houston. Or, maybe I’d pick my visits to Myrtle Beach. I now live there, but I’m going to tell you about a place that almost seems magical. It’s called Havasupai Falls, and yes, you can find it right in the heart of the Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon is a true wonder itself, but Havasupai Falls is a notch above most other natural attractions. Some people say they have a problem getting a hold of the people that offer tours for Havasupai Falls, but there are plenty of people who have been successful. Even the ones I’m reading about have went because they are leaving personal reviews about their trip.

Visitors are welcome to take an adventure into the heart of the Grand Canyon as mentioned and meet people that actually live there, in Supai Village. They are Native Americans, and they have made the Grand Canyon home. Can you imagine what it would be like living out there in the middle of the Grand Canyon next to a natural waterfall? That would be extraordinary for sure.

This is a hiking attraction, so you’re going to have to get some exercise while you follow the hiking path to Havasupai WaterFalls. Your guide will make the trip as easy and as fun as possible, but this has to be your cup of tea. What awaits you at the end is like a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow.


Examples of Health Advice Which Turned Out to Be Wrong

A lot of people are scared of doctors, or don’t have a lot of respect for them because they “keep changing their guidelines”. The reason that guidelines change so often is because quite often the health advice we’re given turns out to be wrong – or at least not optima.

stencil.blog-post-feature (1)That stuff about giving people mouth to mouth resuscitation, for example, has changed a lot over the years, with some experts saying that you should only do chest compressions, and some saying that you should do the breath techniques too.

Then there’s the health advice about eggs – for years, we were told that we should avoid eggs because they’re full of cholesterol, but then that changed and we were told that there’s no link between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol. Fat, too, is something that confuses people – studies (that were sponsored by the farming and grain industry) tell us that if you eat fat you will get fat – but that’s not strictly correct. The truth is that if you eat too many calories of anything, you will get fat – the macronutrient makeup of the food that you eat doesn’t count, it’s just the calories that make a difference.

That doesn’t mean that you should just ignore doctors. The information that they share is put out there in good faith – yes, sometimes it might be overly simplified, but there is a reason for that – giving someone CPR, for example, could put your own health at risk if you give mouth to mouth to someone with an infectious disease. The chest compressions are the most important part of the process, and they are safe, too, while buying time for a medic with the right equipment for CPR to arrive.
