On this day, I felt incredibly happy. This was our second day in the canyon and we set out to hike to Beaver. We had no time restraints or a need to be anywhere but in the moment. A lot of times, we stop to take pictures or have a snack. What I love most about traveling with @ginobruhhh is that he doesn't rush me. Many times I like to just sit and reflect. I enjoy absorbing all of natures energy surrounding me. We stopped at some "mediocre" waterfalls along the trail. I remember we were perched on a rock eating and a guy running down the trail yelled out "is this beaver?" to which I shook my head no. He continued on without a second look at the falls that were before us, like they didn't matter. Gino and I love every bit of nature and indulge in all of her beauty. We climbed ladders, crossed over the flowing river, swam, and even encountered mountain goats during this hike. We laughed a lot and talked about future plans. On our way back, we lost the trail, and I was a bit worried as darkness was approaching. Luckily I brought my headlamp because Gino didn't bring his. We ended up hiking out of Mooney in the dark. The water from the falls made the chains and ladders very slippery. As I was ascending, one of the ladders pulled back, I'm not sure if I yelled. Gino just pushed me forward and told me to be careful. I remember going through the tunnel on the way out, it was so quiet. We stayed in silence for a little then continued on. We got to the top where there was a small group of people with headlamps looking down. I asked them very nonchalantly, "are y'all going down?" They replied laughing "oh no, we're just looking." lol This was a great day!

I am learning to love the sound of my feet walking away from things not meant for me. You have to learn to love yourself so much that you will always do what's in your best interest. Whether it's leaving a toxic relationship, leaving a job that makes you absolutely miserable, cutting ties with friends/family who always seem to hold you back or weigh you down... learn to love yourself and walk away. Focus on the things you want in life, focus on the type of people you want to surround yourself with, focus on where you want to be; the Universe will conspire to make it happen. . . #selflove #focus #manifest #believe #create #love #life #happiness #outdoors #optoutside #traveloften #exploremore #naturetherapy #wildernessculture #staywild #freedom #adventure #hike #hiking

Wednesdays are for waterfalls. ๐Ÿ˜„ In 1872, the Grand Canyon was already aflutter with prospectors dreaming of gold and silver. One such prospector, named Daniel Mooney, was interested in the lands at the base of the waterfall that now bears his name. After failing to find a route down the waterfalls on previous trips, Mooney and his party returned to the south rim of the Grand Canyon in 1882, determined to descend. Failing to find a way to descend by hiking, Mooneyโ€™s plan was to repel down the waterfall using a rope. His plan seemed obviously simple, however he didnโ€™t factor in the sharpness of the rock columns and a few scrapes later, his rope was frayed and he was dangling by thin fibers. His friends tried to pull him up, but the strain only caused the wasted rope to weaken and Mooney fell to his death. The story goes that Mooneyโ€™s friends, returning to the site the day after Mooneyโ€™s fall, found a local Indian wearing their friendโ€™s boots. When they asked him how he got them, the Indian showed them a set of small caves heโ€™d gone through and then a steep โ€œtrailโ€ that led to the base. The party quickly deemed the Indianโ€™s trail as too dangerous and after making note of the terrain, they returned home. Almost a year later, the remaining party, along with a new member, Mat Humphreys, returned to the site with the goal of tunneling through the caves. Todayโ€™s existing trail is the proof of their success; blasting through the caves, a route into the rock was created by widening the natural tunnels. Humphrey then hammered spikes and chains into the face of the rock to aid his descent. Although meant as temporary guide , Humphreyโ€™s Trail is still used today to aid visitors down to the base of Mooney Falls. Credit: grandcanyonsecrets.com ๐Ÿ“ธ by: @ginobruhhh
