After hiking out of the Grand Canyon and a juicy Portobello mushroom burger at Jacob Lake Lodge I headed down to Stateline campground arriving after dark. This also happens to be the end of the Arizona Trail.
Lucky #6: I got the last campsite at Stateline campground. I was surprised it was nearly full. I have never seen more than one other group there!
Lucky #7: My neighbor camper invited me over to his camp fire already roaring away! Many people reached out to me on this trip, maybe because I was solo. He had driven all the way from Texas to hike The Wave but had not been able to
The lottery draw for The Wave sounded like something to witness so the next morning I attended! There were 101 people there for 10 slots!!
Lucky #8: My name was pulled and I got TWO permits for The Wave the following day!!
Lucky #9: I had plans to meet DH that day. We went to Grovesnor Arch. Another place I have seen on magazine covers and never been.
The next day we hiked to The Wave and it was everything hyped up to be and then a bit more amazing than that. Lucky me.
