Backpacking to Havasu Falls - Part II

Backpacking to Havasu Falls - Part II

I began my hike from the Hualapai Hilltop parking lot around 5 AM. The trail starts off going down a series of switchbacks where you descend around 1,000 feet in the first mile or so. Almost immediately I ran into my first obstacle; four horses, two of which were babies. The trail was quite narrow, so I made sure not to get too close to the horses as they were slowly walking down in front of me.
