So, in a couple weeks I'm embarking on an adventure.
I'm learning a few things about the gorgeous natural wonders of the earth.
Things I'm learning:
1. nobody wants to take care of the earth
2. and they like to trash it (look at the West Desert--where I work--if you don't believe me)
3. what few wonders are left are really hard to go to
4. because everyone wants to see them now that they're so rare
5. hiking/backpacking permits must be aquired MONTHS in advanced
6. I've never really planned things in advance before
7. I'm gonna have to start planning ahead of time if I want to see Havasupai
Since I'm not very good at planning, I'm just gonna have to write about the garden of eden of the West. This little oasis takes a 10 mile hike through hot desert land, passing a real-life native american village and through a deep red-rock canyon...but boy it looks worth every mile!
