Thank you, Havasupai

4 sunny fun days. 3 magic dark nights
under the stars that were shining so bright

while we slept in our hammocks, that's where we were
under the trees, no one knew we were there

what an adventure. my words are lost
trying to describe what I loved the most

the colour of the water, turquoise, so bright
the trees so green, shimmery silver light

the red rocky mountains, naked and tall
the blue blue sky, with only eagle's call

oh, Havasupai, you captured my heart
time stood still, how I wanted it to last

and not only nature, but the people too
they made the adventure - a fairy-tale come through

both my own little group and the Indians there
with a laugh, a kind look, and you sense that they care

about you and the world and the ones they have near
- and they are in the bubble just like you
- with no cars, shops or internet, and they enjoy it too

and the feeling of being completely away from the whole world

and yet

I have never felt more



Some pictures from our trip (more might come, it might take a life time to absorb this journey. Thank you Vidar, for some of these pictures!)

Farewell Havasupai!
