Join us for a Thanksgiving trip you will never forget! Outdoor Adventures is traveling to the Grand Canyon from November 20 - 25, 2012. We will travel to the Supai campground and Havasu Canyon. This will involve a moderately strenuous backpack of about 10 miles to/from the campground.
The price of this trip is $350 for the USD community and $400 for everyone else. Space is limited.
Havasupai Canyon, considered by many one of the most beautiful places on the planet is a tributary to the Colorado River. With turquoise water, clay cliffs, 200 foot waterfalls, and natural pools, it insures an increadible destination for Thanksgiving Break. We will backpack 10 miles into the Supai campground and then spend our break dayhiking and exploring one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
The hike into and out of the Supai campground is rated as moderately difficult, while the dayhikes around the falls will generally be less challenging.
We will meet at Outdoor Adventures on Tuesday, Nov. 20th and depart by 6:00 PM. We'll drive to Mojave National Preserve that evening where we will camp for the night. Wednesday, we will wake up early, finish the drive to the canyon and backpack to Supai campground. In Havasupai Canyon we will spend Thanksgiving and Friday in the canyon, then backpack out of Supai campground and start the drive back on Saturday. We will finish the drive on late Saturday or early Sunday, and will most of Sunday to wish we were still at the Grand Canyon.
