Couch to Havasupai Falls: Moderate Hikes in Phoenix!

If you are already familiar with the series ‘Couch to Havasupai Falls’, then welcome! If not, let me give you some info. A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to friends about hiking Havasupai Falls and those friends told me they were hesitant to do the 10+ mile hike because they couldn’t just go from their ‘couch to havasupai falls’. I told them I would start a series to get them ready for this arduous hike, so here we are! The series includes easy, moderate, and difficult hikes to prepare you for Havasupai Falls. If you haven’t checked out the easy hikes list, you can see it here.

But for now, let’s get into the moderate hikes! The hikes are listed in order of ease (#4 is easiest moderate, #3 is easy moderate, #2 is moderate, and #1 is the transition hike to go from moderate to difficult hikes). Enjoy!

I’m very excited to announce that I have partnered with Circle 6 Studios in Phoenix to cross off a big bucket list item: glass blowing!

March Madness and Mini Corn Dogs!

This post is sponsored by Foster Farms. As always, all opinions are my own.

My friends, it is my favorite time of the year, it is officially MARCH MADNESS!

It’s been a fabulous beginning to March Madness because my team (Arizona Wildcats!) won the PAC 12 Basketball Tournament and I am hoping that they make it all the way in the NCAA Tournament. I think this is our year, but even if it’s not and my bracket gets busted…at least I will enjoy hosting game viewing parties and eating tasty snacks. I’ve partnered with Foster Farms for their Snack Time Bracket Busters (#FFBracketBusters) campaign to show you all that mini corn dogs are the easiest appetizers to have during game viewing parties!

This month I’ve partnered with The Brush Bar, a paint and wine bar in Scottsdale that offers instruction for adults and serves beer, wine and cocktails. This partnership came to be because I’ve gotten so many requests from friends and Enthusiastic readers to try out something like this.
