Feliz aniversario querida

That one time for my birthday...
This year I turned 27. So I went to Havasupai to celebrate. Almost. 
It got flooded. A lot. We unfortunately didn't find out till we were there at the trailhead. 
We of course stopped at the Hoover Dam on the way. 
(The sadness in this picture is overwhelming.)
So we went to Sedona instead. Not an equal trade by a long shot, but still fun. 
(Slide Rock State Park)
(Sterling Pass, a short hike; we never did find Vultee Arch though)
We did an overnighter up the West Fork Canyon. This is where we camped:
(My little tent under the little lean-to)
(Looking pretty good for a 27yo.)
The first three mile you criss-cross the river until the trail ends and you hike in the river for the next 3 miles. 
Worth it. 
Arizona is the prettiest. 
Then of course we thought it'd be a good idea to go to the Grand Canyon. We camped in Kaibob National Forest, right outside the park. 
Arizona sunrises. 
I've never been to the Grand Canyon. I had no idea I'd experience the awe that I did. It was incredible. 

Next time, Havasupai, next time.
