ROAD TRIP SERIES: LITTLE JAMAICA, ARIZONA!
Are you ready to get FRESH?💧
With the temperatures getting well above hundred degrees, it was about time we took a more refreshing road trip. A scenic view with natural waters to keep us cool! This was a great change from the several dry desert canyon parks we visited previously because we finally got to feel as if we're on the beach by the water...except this time a mesmerizing waterfall! EPIC right? I know!!!
Welcome to Little Jamaica! A hidden oasis (maybe, not so hidden because it gets super crowded over the weekend), along the Virgin River found right under the freeway bridge. A man made tiny pool where you can enjoy some family time, soak up in the water all day long and just have a blast. Perfect spot to visit and make the most of this summer!🤗
From Las Vegas, it's about an hour and fifty minutes drive, just after you cross the Arizona border, in a town called Littlefield. It's only 10 minutes away from Mesquite. The driving is the easy part! The more challenging part is actually finding the hidden gem because you'll have to do a short hike to get there. You'll see it from above where it's mostly green and looks like a tropical forest, but the trail is not clearly marked and there's different paths all crossing each other. What we did was listen for the waterfall and try to figure out where the sound was coming from and follow the path that seemed to bring us closer and closer to the sound of falling water. We eventually made it down, and found another little hidden waterfall, so we decided to spend most of our time there, since there was shade and the water was cooler. Don't worry if you get a bit lost...we kind of did, but eventually found our way. Yay, for exploring and discovering new places!!!
Now...It's time to get Wet, Wild & Fresh!!!😜
While a single swimsuit will do the job, I still like to put some effort into my look. I always like playing with cover-ups or button down shirts that I can tie around or let loose. For this one, you can even borrow one of your boyfriend/husband's shirts. Shhh, he'll never notice! Haha, and I promise, I'll never tell!🤫
Also, you know me and my jewelry obsession...rings, bracelets, and necklaces must all be present, so when the waterfall hits, you start panicking, checking if everything is still there. hahaha! I'm happy to say I survived this one, but had a few mental scares of losing my rings. This one I think you fashionistas can only understand!
Just like that with the snap of a finger, it's the end of August! I'm getting ready for the next road trip, which will be for a few days. I can't wait for you to see it, once the post goes live. Any guesses where I'm headed?
