Have you heard of Havasuapi? 
Its probably one of the coolest places in Arizona! Its just a 
short 10 mile hike through the Havasui Indian Reservation in the grand canyon and into a land of waterfalls, Indians and camping. At first I was pretty skeptical of the whole idea of hiking EVERYTHING 10 miles into our destination, but boy oh boy was it worth it! 
We went with some of our favorites people, Ryan and Lindsay. They were on their way back from California so we met up in Las Vegas for a few days. We went to the Lion King show which is probably the coolest Broadway show out there. It was my first Broadway show, so I'm a little biased, but I can't imagine any other show having the cool effects and costumes! Highly recommended! We also had to make a stop at the famous Pawn Shop as seen on the history channel show, Pawn Stars.

The next night we drove to where we would start hiking, Hualapai Hilltop. We started our hike at about 6 am, and it took about 3 1/2 -4 hours to get to our camp ground. 
The campgrounds there aren't near any of the waterfalls, the closest is about 1/2 mile. After setting up our camp we hiked back to rock falls for some cliff jumping. It's a 30 ft drop and Matt's last jump left him with a pretty nasty lookin bruise! 

You have to kind of make your own fun while camping, so Matt and Ryan decided to have a boat race. Ryan clearly won on looks, but Matt won on buoyancy.

Another waterfall they have there is Havasu Falls, which is one of the main falls and b-e-a-u-tiful!

The next day we decided to be even more adventurous and hike down the rough terrain to Mooney Falls. When I mean rough I mean straight down a cliff and if you slip- you die, kinda hike.  But it was so worth it! 

We found a little rope swing while exploring, which was so much fun, so we hung out there for a while! 

This is probably one of my new favorites places and I cant wait to go back!
