My husband and I took a few days off this week for a cheap stay-cation so we could hike around town and use daycare as a babysitter for our 16 month old. It was colder than I expected today, but we didn't get rained on thankfully. Grass, grass everywhere but not really many wildflowers. The brittle bush are going to be biliously confluent in this area soon -- they're in the pre-bloom dark green phase with shoots starting to go up.

We started from our house and went on neighborhood sidewalks to a cut-through to Paradise Trail then Quartz. We only went up to the outcrop for lunch and then back the way we came. I love the views from the outcrop - especially with cloudy haze today. There was one flaming ocotillo (curious why it was really the only one I saw blooming in the area) that caught my eye especially with all that white rock around.

I finally figured out how to get my iPhone GPS routes uploaded to HAZ!! Yeehaw. I use the EveryTrail phone app to record my running and hiking routes and I use my phone to take pics along the way too. Someone smart and bored needs to make a HAZ iPhone app :DANCE: that does the same thing!!!

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...
