Let me begin by saying I'm not THAT girl. That cool one that hikes and runs and bikes and loves it.
No I'm not really that girl. I'm kinda a girly girl and sure I'll do the things mentioned above but I drag my feet. I do end up loving that I either a) did it and thoroughly enjoyed myself like biking/cycling or b) I am thankful I lived through it like running or hiking.
My husband, however, loves to hike and bike and is one with the outdoors... well except for running, he only runs if he's chased.
Anyway... I just didn't want you guys to be fooled into believing that I'd rather rough it on the ground wearing Teva's or running/cross training shoes than dressing up to the nines and being treated to a nice steak dinner and staying at a 5 star hotel somewhere and spending loads and loads of money on myself.
Wanted to make sure that was crystal clear. If my genetics didn't call for me to do physical exercise in order to stay healthy or my husband didn't love it so much, trust me, I'd never do it.
Moving along...I am actually happy I did this with my Husband. He loves this stuff and the place we went to Havasupai is so incredibly beautiful! It's this Oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert. Amazing. But also one of the hardest hikes I've ever done and I finished that very happy I lived through it... because there were times I thought I wasn't going to make it.
Anyway... To those I was honored to go with. Thank you so much for one of the best experiences of my life... even if I almost killed someone with my water bottle and had to actually sleep on the ground with our kid play tent! heh! It was so cool and something I will always treasure, especially because I got to bond and get to know you guys more!
Onto the pictures:
MSM and I... thought that rock was cool just sticking out of there. It was massive. See us compared to it at the bottom of the pic there?
It won't matter... I hiked out of that canyon and lived to tell the tale. I can't even tell you what an accomplishment that is it's something you HAVE to experience.
Hope you all had a good Easter weekend!
