In the morning, we had porridge and then we headed to Little Navajo. Little Navajo has many little spots to jump off and this waterfall place is very fun place for people, who are scared of the crazy high heights. Then we got to the big waterfall and there was a cave, where we could sit behind, which was really cool. We just sat inside it and saw all the water falling and dripping down.
After Little Navajo, we got to Hidden Falls and it’s called Hidden Falls, because it really is hidden! It’s quite complicated to follow the trail, because it was so slim and half of the trail was going through water. Hidden Falls was my favorite waterfall place from all the 5. It might not have the greatest and coolest waterfall, but the rocks, where people could jump off, is the most fun part of Hidden. In the beginning, I was just watching people jumping off the about 50 feet (15 meters) cliffs and I was debating, climbing up there and to jump off that thing, because it looks so cool. It was just one of those moments, where you don’t know, if you should do it or not, but after you did it, it would be just the best decision ever. I mean it didn’t look THAT crazy crazy high, but it was a bit really crazy high, you know? So I continued sitting there, seeing people jumping off it again and again and finding even higher spots to jump off. Then I got asked, if I jumped off that cliff and I said no, so they encouraged me to jump off and I. DID. IT. As I walked to the spot to start hiking up, Macy was running towards me and asked, if I want her to jump with me and I said yes, because I was still terrified. We got up there and it was so high, but not as high as I had in mind, but STILL! My legs were shaking and as I said, I’m actually not afraid of heights, but imagining JUMPING OFF of this cliff is just crazy. It didn’t took me long up there to jump off. I held my Macy’s hand and she asked me, if I’m ready and said no and then down, down, down weg go. What no one tells you is, that you have to run a bit and push yourself off the rock, so you don’t hit any rocks down there. So that was quite a challenge and pure adrenaline, that I felt. The fall didn’t feel long at all and I wasn’t too deep under water. All the pressure was coming off and I still can’t believe, that I actually jumped off that thing. The quite dumb thing, that I did was, that I got into the water with my eyes open. Yes, my eyes open… So dumb. I got above the water and I just couldn’t open my eyes and it was so painful. Macy was helping me out, but then I was alright. After Hidden Falls, we split our groups. A few people went back to Mooney, some stayed at the Campground to rest and since I already been to Mooney, I stayed with my host sister at Havasu Falls, because I was quite tired and wanna hang out and enjoy the waterfall. For dinner we had wraps with chicken and it was so good. The rest of the night, we rest and at night a few people started heading out of the canyon, because it was the last day and they wanted to get there early and come back to help the rest of the group to carry some other weights. I headed out at 3:30 am with my group of girls and we had headlights and found our way out. We did quite a few breaks and that one break was just perfect. We laid on that even, big rock while it was dark outside and we looked up the stars and it was just so pretty and peaceful. Will I ever forget this moment? No, I don't think so. So there is us: 4 girls, trying to find our way out the Grand Canyon with headlights on, in the dark. We got really tired, when it got uphill. Somehow we took a different path, that we didn't took right in the beginning. So we weren’t quite sure, if we’re right, but it went UPHILL!! We felt like dying, but we made it. I think, we got out at 7:30 am and on the trailhead were a few people of the youth group and we had cold Gatorade and snacks. It was really good. We waited up there for the rest of the group to come and then got IN N OUT and I swear, IN N OUT never tasted so good.
