The whole purpose of me returning to Havasupai was to hike to the river, which I had not previously done. Well, this is the absolute highlight of the whole thing. I mean, the waterfalls are cool, but let's face it, they're overplayed. There are so many photos and videos of them that you almost don't need to go for yourself. Not to mention, the photos always frame them in such a perfect view that once you see them surrounded by the rest of real life, it's a little bit anticlimactic.

Downstream is a different story, and it actually has me pining to go back. Which is a definite surprise as I had sort of thought that this would be the last time I'd endure this whole tourist enterprise thing. Now I'm going to have to rethink that. The lack of helicopters or mules should keep a few miles of this creek relatively special, and for that I'm grateful.
