Starting out at Rogers Trough TH, we headed down 1100 feet in elevation; 4.1 miles to the Salado Indian Cliff Dwelling. What an amazing place! I studied the inside of the cave and dwellings for some time. You could tell how the still-covered dwelling was the sleeping shelter, created so that a fire could be built in the center so that the inhabitants could be warm. There are smoke stains all along to underside of the dwelling's roof.
While all of the carvings of people's names on the inside of the dwelling makes me angry, I did see some names and dates from the early 1900's. I didn't see any from the 1800's.
After a PB&J sandwich and several pictures, we hiked back towards Rogers Trough TH, but we made a quick detour to see Elisha Reavis' grave. This was very exciting to us because both my uncle and I own Jack Carlson's Hiking the Superstitions book with Reavis on the cover.
It was a great day, with great company, and the views were amazing. I had never been on a 'real' 4X4 road before. It was awesome!

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
I was watching the helicopter make multi-drops of people and supplies when, at one point, a stray horse wandered into the landing field (the gate was open). The guys unloading the supplies chased it around the field until it went back out the gate. Then as it was running up the main drag, another resident must have thought it got loose so he shooed it back into another open gate and back into the field. So now these guys are chasing it around the field again but this time they start pelting it with rocks. The horse was panicking and didn't know where to go. Rocks were being hurled at it from all directions. He ended up falling down after a really hard rock hit and it looked like he broke...
