Spring Retreat: Havasupai Falls Hike Part 1

Even when led by the still small voice of our perfect God, real life messes are unavoidable; we are imperfect people living in an imperfect world.

One morning while sitting with my coffee, I saw that Maria had shared a picture on my Facebook page of a spectacular waterfall. I was captivated by the tranquility of the water in this photo. The turquoise colors looked as if the picture had been edited to enhance its beauty. I gazed at this picture for a while wondering where in the world this fall was located.


Last year on our spring retreat we took a field trip to the Grand Canyon.  Since we only had one day, we scheduled a Pink Jeep tour to be sure to see the most majestic look out points.  Maria and I fell in love with the mysterious beauty of God’s creation and decided that soon, we were going to train and plan a hike to explore this monstrous cavity.  

When I saw the stunning picture of the waterfall that Maria shared with me on Facebook, I asked her where the picture was taken. Maria responded by saying the waterfall was in the Grand Canyon. I thought, in the Grand Canyon? How in the world is this waterfall in the Grand Canyon? I had heard of people hiking in the Canyon but I had never heard of this in the Canyon before.

That was the moment it clicked, on our next Spring Retreat, we were going to hike the Canyon to see one of the worlds greatest kept secrets, the Havasupai Falls.
