Havasu Canyon

How about May 3-6th? The ETA Aquarids shower runs from April 19th- May 28th, with the peak May 5th pm/May 6th am.

This is a 10 mile hike so we could hike in Sat and we can camp 2 miles past the falls or folks can stay at the lodge, if they choose. I'm camping. We can return the morning of the 6th.

You can 'purchase' a guide and mule if you aren't comfortable backpacking your gear in.

I will be flying into Phoenix or Las Vegas, arriving Friday evening, then driving to Supai that evening. Camping in the car or anything I can find :).

**Important**Please call and make your own reservation as this thread has been ongoing for awhile and I have no idea who is for sure going.  Please also update your RSVP.

    May is definitely out, but I haven't removed the date on this event since it requires me to put a new date. I am looking at Sept or Oct.

      Thanks, Jill and Uma. Yes, Uma. that may be how we have to do it! :P. I'll look into it!

      March 14, 2014

    • Uma

      Hey Larissa, Thanks so much for the effort!! I will join if the its anytime in Aug/Sep or Oct.

      March 14, 2014

  • Larissa

    All, planning this has become ridiculous :). So, Jill was the first to call to make a reservation and found out that the campgrounds are full for May and July. June is way too hot, August may be too. Perseids IS all of August (peek 8/12-13), so we MAY be able to look at August 22-25th (new moon- better star viewing on the 25th) or some other ideas - September 26-29th (new moon is the 24th), Oct 3-6th (full moon is the 8th).

    I'm really sorry for all of this!

    March 13, 2014

  • Uma

    I really want to do. May- wont work for me, still in the recovery mode from my knee injury. Please post pictures, we can plan for a second trip sometime later

    Would love to go. Will decide once the date has been set.

    February 4, 2014

  • Larissa

    All, I know we've been tossing and changing dates and so I tried to lock in something. Unfortunately with my current release I won't be able to do this date. I would like to look at late summer (when it isn't too hot) and preferably during a meteor shower or full moon. Perseids are during the month of August, but that may be too hot. MY apologies for haven't locking down a date on this!

      Hi Larissa, August has the risk of flush storms and it could be dangerous if it happens. We usually get to the trail head the night before, and camp on the trail head, then get up early to beat the heat. Rather hot than cold, because it's so much mooooorrre fun to feel comfortable to soak in all the water falls.

      January 29, 2014

  • Chris F.

    I won't be able to make this date either. I'd be up for going sometime in the summer, when it's warmer.

    1 · January 25, 2014

  • Yan

    March might be a bit too cold for the trip. There are lots of water down there and the water is pretty cold. I don't think it is as fun if you can't get into the turquoise blue water. There is a 16 miles (round trip) trail from the campground to Colorado river. The hike is breathtaking and fun. You will have to be in water in many parts of the trail. If you are going in March, the water is freezing.

    January 16, 2014

    • Larissa

      Thanks for the input. You're probably right. Unfortunately this weather is so difficult to tell! I wanted to get something on the calendar, but unfortunately I may not be able to do this date now!

      January 22, 2014

  • Uma

    Are you trying roundtrip tickets to Phoenix AZ? or anyother airport? I will also start checking. We should also look for hotels or campgrounds.

    I think the round trip tickets are pretty cheap> Are we camping there?

    December 28, 2013

  • Shannon

    Glad we have settled on a date. Are you gals driving or flying.

    December 28, 2013

  • Uma

    I see lot of votes for spring. Even if part of the group plans it for Jan, we can do a second group in spring? I can add a different one if ppl are interested in the Spring timeframe.

    December 25, 2013

  • Shannon

    So, is the trip happening Jan 1 or at a future date this spring?

    December 18, 2013

  • Uma

    I am up for Spring too...did anyone check on the camping or lodging?

    December 12, 2013

  • Shannon

    I lived in AZ for a number of years and would love to visit Havasu but like so many others, spring would work better for me.

  • Chris F.

    Jan doesn't work for me either, but I'd be up for spring/early summer.

    December 9, 2013

  • Aia Sarah S.

    I'm really interested in this but Jan 1 doesn't work for me ;/ darn.

    December 7, 2013

  • Larissa

    I'd be up for this in the spring... hopefully during a full moon or a celestial event. Let me look into it. January 1st isn't going ot work for me :(

      Spring works for me too:-)

    I have been there three times now. The best months to go is June (also the busiest month), because it is warm and no flood possibilities, then followed by Sept. Water could be a bit cold in Sept. though. July and August could have flood down the canyon. April, May, and Oct. are OK, but water is cold. As for climbing, the answer is no. It's pristine, but it has become very touristy lately. If you plan to backpack down there, expect mules passing by you every ten minutes. Dust and mules drops could get old pretty fast. Also expect to see pasty people hanging out by the falls eating big juicy burger carried in by mules! Overall, it's still a breathtaking place.

    Did you girls do this trip yet? If not, I am interested. The pictures were amazing!

    Are there places to rock climb or canyoneering. I can bring my gear. Ill research this if anyone else is interested.

    July 1, 2013

  • Uma

    I checked on the camping and the Lodging, many posted its good if we can camp very close to the falls. Its open until oct, I can call and check if its available in Sep or Oct. We can plan more in the white water rafting trip!

    June 28, 2013

  • Uma

    I just read about it on yahoo last week and thought it would be a great place to add it to our list. I Can do some research and see how we can make it work. Any suggestions/comments are welcome :)

    I've been obsessed with going to this place the last month or so since I found out about it! Apparently you have to make reservations 3-4 months in advance, especially during summer and fall. I would love to go and even if we can't plan for this year then next year would be great as well!

    June 28, 2013

    • Skee

      When I was reading about it, it says it gets really hot in the summer and it's best to go in the spring. So maybe if we plan for a spring or fall trip now? Of course, it's hard for people to know that far in advance if they can be free. . .

      June 28, 2013

  • Michelle

    HECK YES! That place looks amazing. I am free July 10 till Aug 10. Soon? or later?

    June 28, 2013

    This sounds great. I would love to go as well:-). Do you have more info?: how many days, where r we staying?

    I would LOVE to go. A couple of the girls in the group went in April and the pictures were amazing!
