I went with the Priests and Teachers in our ward down to Havasupai.  As many of you know it is a pretty grueling hike so needless to say my old bones needed a "shake me up, Judy!" (name that movie) When we finally got to the campgrounds and had camp all setup we decided to head to the closest falls and have a swim. As we arrived at Havasu fall we were told that a flood was coming and that we couldn't go swimming, but not to worry because it was expected to be a small one.  So being the rubber-neckers we are we decided to stay and watch the flood come through at the falls.  Now either the reservation has awful predicting equipment or the flood picked up some serious steam because when we decided we better get back to camp and check on things the entire campground was getting swept away by the flood waters! Fortunately none of our stuff was lost, and the lovely village of Havasupai put us up in their Elementary school gym to await the reopening of the trail out of there the next morning.  We ended up having a great spiritual experience and as my mom says "better for it."
