1565915

The legendary green-blue water of Havasu Falls is truly breathtaking. It’s a not-so popular destination for tourists, but is a hidden gem for outdoorsmen or for those who simply enjoy trekking. This remote treasure is located in Supai, Arizona, enclosed within the Havasupai Indian Reservation.

Getting here from the most popular sites in Grand Canyon can be extremely challenging. Instead of mapping out your own trail, you need a tour guide to help you get around easier and more comfortably.

Packing bare necessities can be very tricky if you’re going to spend a few days in Havasu Falls. Although you may rent out pack mules or horses, you still need to travel light.

Here is a list of items that you need for your Havasu Falls trail hike:

  • supportive hiking boots or shoes
  • lightweight tent
  • swimsuit
  • water shoes
  • cotton or any lightweight t-shirt for day hike
  • long-sleeved fleece or wool shirts
  • rain jackets and pants
  • sun hat
  • trekking poles
  • sleeping bag
  • backpacking stove
  • cookware
  • matches or lighter
  • headlamp
  • extra batteries
  • sunscreen
  • insect repellent

It is also important that you bring food and water with you. Although food is being sold in the campground or in the lodge at Havasu Falls, you still need to bring your own food supply in case you get hungry and thirsty along the way.

Pick some food items that are compact and easy to prepare:

  • energy bars
  • electrolye-filled drinks
  • snacks such as trail mix, dried fruits, etc.
  • foods that are convenient such as instant oats, granola, and tuna packets
  • dehydrated backpacking meals are also ideal if you want something quick and easy to prepare
  • water treatment device or water filter

How An Auto Insurance Quotes Comparison Can Get You Better Coverage

stencil.blog-post-feature (12)

There are many insurance companies claiming to offer the lowest rate. However, you can’t depend on an ad to determine which insurer will give you the best coverage for the lowest price.

Your insurance rate is based on many different factors including your age, your driving record and where you live. The only way to find out the best rate is to get an auto insurance quotes comparison (I did compare car insurance quotes before I bought mine).

The best way to do this is to complete a quotes application for several insurers. Make sure they get your personal information, instead of basing the quote on general information about you. If the insurer does not ask for your driver’s license number and the VIN for the vehicle, your quote may not be accurate.

When you get the quote you need to make sure you are looking at comparable policies. You should check the coverage levels, the types of coverage and the deductible amounts to make sure the comparisons are based on similar policies.

After making the auto insurance quotes comparison, you should have a good idea of how much your insurance will cost. Then, you can look into each company to determine which is the best for you. You’ll want to look at some reviews from customers to see if most of the current and past policyholders are satisfied with their service.

When you choose a company, you can start looking into ways to reduce the cost of your insurance. You can ask about different discounts which may be offered for safe drivers, people who complete a defensive driving course or for multiple vehicles.

With these discounts, you may be able to save a significant amount of money. This money can be used to get better coverage or you can keep it for yourself.

Find Out Why People Visit Havasupai

Are you looking for somewhere to visit in the United States that has more panoramic views than many other locations in the country? Do you need some peace and quiet, as well as enjoying fresh air? Then the answer is to visit the Havasupai tribal region of the country (they have this amazing havasupai waterfalls). This area covers thousands of square miles, and is located in northwestern Arizona, just a couple of hours drive from Las Vegas. What makes this reservation so famous is that the Grand Canyon runs through it, along with all of its natural features.

The area itself is mostly desert, but even so, it hosts so many varieties of flora that a nature lover will find plenty to keep them happy. There are also plenty of living creatures around such as snakes, lizards, squirrels, and insects. These are all a sideline to the main event, which is the canyon itself. The Havasupai are the people who have built a walkway over the canyon that has a glass floor. Not everyone is comfortable walking on to it, but it is perfectly safe. The views from this walkway will stay with the visitor forever. Although there is a charge to use this, it is one of those things that most people will only do once in their life.

For those who are looking for a bit more to do in this region, then there are many hiking trails that go into the wilderness. A number of them end at some of the best waterfalls that the US has to offer. The waters are a clear azure blue, and this is thanks to the minerals which are naturally dissolved in the water. Although some of the falls mean walking for a few miles, upon arrival it is quickly realized that all of the effort was worth it.

Examples of Health and Fitness Advice that Turned Out to be Wrong

Over the years, we have learned a lot about health and fitness. Many of the things that we were told when we were younger are now known to be wrong. One example of this is the idea that if you want to get lean, do cardio, if you want to get bulky, lift weights. Another example is the idea that lifting heavy weights for low reps will make you stronger and add muscle mass, while lifting moderate weights for high reps is ‘toning’.

These health and fitness ideas are misguided, and they came from the way that bodybuilders, when they were preparing for a contest, would lift lighter weights because they were running a calorie deficit and didn’t have the energy to lift heavy weights.

stencil.blog-post-imageThe truth is that if you want to be healthy you need to lift weights and do cardio. Both of these are things that will improve your health and your body composition, and will help you to lose weight if you need to. Cardio is good for your heart, and resistance training is good for building bone density and improving your muscle mass. Both will help you with general fitness, making you better able to cope with the challenges of the day.
A lot of diet advice that gets thrown around is outdated too. The idea that fats are bad, for example, comes from decades old studies that have since been shown to be inaccurate. If you eat a diet that includes plenty of protein, some complex carbohydrates and some fat, then you will be fine, and you will get most of the nutrition you need on a daily basis. Even sugar isn’t going to do you a lot of harm if enjoyed in moderation.
