Bob and I headed up to meet Dave and hike down the Havasu Canyon Trail. I messed up and had to run back to Sligman to get gas but we still were able to hit the trail by 6:30. The hike down went pretty smooth. Some nice color on the cliffs. Dave and I checked in and Bob was at the campground by 10:00 to get us a spot. The new falls were cool and all the green in the river was nice. Havasu was still nice just less pools but still room to swim. We set up camp and headed down to Mooney Falls. They have a couple new wooden bathrooms I didn't remember and new chains going down Mooney. The water was pretty cold but had to get in. The pool is shallow but you could swim a little. Bob feel down and might of broke his toe so back to camp we went. Bob hung out at camp and nursed his toe and Dave and I went to check out the new falls. The creek between the two new falls has a lot of green and was a pretty area. After playing there it was on for some Indian Fry Bread and the back to swim in Hvasu Falls. The water was was great and we had it all to ourselves for awhile then only 4 people showed up.(sweet). From there it was back to hang out with Bob. Dave left in the Morning. Bob stayed close and checked out Mooney in the morning and I tagged along with some neighbors to Beaver Falls. I really like the hike down there and there are plenty of places to play along the way. We weren't sure how to get below Beaver Falls and one person didn't want to try the ropes up so we backtracked to the last pool and swam and ate lunch. I fell and messed up my camera here. If anyone works on cameras PLEASE pm me. We saw a total of about 15 Bighorn sheep on the way back to camp. Bob checked out Mooney and a cave or two and we just hung out until bed. we headed out at a little after two and topped out at a little after 7. KUDOS to Bob for making it out with that painful toe. Thanks to Bob and Dave for going.
