Where In The World?

Guess where I am today? I'll give you some hints.

1) They just barely got access to wireless internet. Literally. Yesterday.

2) You can't drive there. You have to hike, go by mule, or helicopter . This is me and my mom getting ready to go in. No that is not our stuff. If that was our stuff do you think those cases would be anything but Diet Coke? Exactly.


3) It's the last place in the US that still uses mules to deliver the mail. Dusty, dusty mules.


4) And the falls are spectacular!

Havasupai Canyon! :-)

Vern said...

I've heard of people hiking that but I never had a desire to do it. But now that you say it has internet?? Well then, I guess I might have to reconsider.

Emmy said...

Wow, I have no idea but it sure looks amazing!

Lisa said...

The Grand Canyon and my husband will be so jealous!

Paul said...

I wonder if you'll hook up with a rogue native American boy, as did Bobby and Cindy. Remember to keep a flashlight handy, in case you have to sneak him some beans.

Jen said...

Havasupi, of course! I heard the falls were damaged by the floods?

Tay said...

Darn! I wanted to be the first to know where you are.

Have fun! I love that place!

Wherever it is, it's so pretty!

Yvonne said...

I should have let Allan tell you the story of his first experience at those falls--when he was a young (yes he was young once) Scout leader and almost killed all of his Scouts.

Have a great time. Beautiful pictures.

Celeste said...

I'm dying to know...its so beautiful!

Julie said...

Havasupai! My favorite place on earth! I will say, however, it looks REALLY different since the flood...

Janell said...

That looks like what I would guess the Grand Canyon to look like. . . except I don't see a big canyon in your photos.

Lucy said...

I want to go down there. I don't want to hike down and I don't want to hike up so keep that helicopter handy for me.

LisAway said...

Havasupai, of course!

I have never heard of Havasupai.

It is gorgeous in Havasupai.

That waterfall seriously blew me away.

Off to look up Havasupai.

Lorie said...

That would be the Grand Canyon behind you! Havasupai

the MomBabe said...

You're in my home state! Have fun!

Melissa said...

Looks amazing wherever you are! Everyone is saying Havasupai... so I guess I need to go look that up! :)
Take more pictures!!

Jillybean said...

My guess is that you are somewhere without flushing toilets and is outside the delivery area for Dominoes Pizza.

Am I right?

Gorgeous photo of the waterfall!

Heather said...

GC all the way! Have fun a great time!

PS Whose lucky @$$ {donkey} gets pack the Diet Coke in? I couldn't resist.

Annette Lyon said...

I'm dying to know. And part of me is dying to go, while the other half thinks I'd die if I did.

Cherie said...

To me it looks/sounds like the Grand Canyon but the waterfall is throwing me off!! Can't wait to find out! Have fun :D

Christy said...

My husband took his scouts there two years ago... before the flood damage. They LOVED it!

I totally want to go and my Mother in law is dying to serve a mission there. She thinks it would be so awesome to live in that little canyon away from everything and everyone.

Loralee and the gang... said...

Looks Grand Canyon-ish. Is that where you are? Lucky you. I would love to see that place!
:~D

beckers said...

I'm so jealous that you guys got to go!!!

Julie Ramsay said...

Take lots of pictures so we can live vicariously!!!

Stacey said...

Gorgeous pics! That waterfall is beautiful!

I knew the soda wasn't yours because of the lack of diet coke. ;)

Linda said...

What a blast.

Kimberly said...

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! Err...the waterfall...not the mules...

Dave said...

I was wondering, did you take August off? When is the next post coming?

The trip looks fun. I'm pretty jealous of that helicopter ride.
