I had a day to get out into Nature again. It was either this or a portion of Bluff Springs Trail. I chose this as I've never been to the top. I left the Crosscut Trailhead, followed Jacobs Crosscut Trail, then took Siphon Draw Trail up to the top. It was a great hike. Very nice hiking up in the early morning. The top was a little chilly, especially with a sweaty t shirt I had to air dry at the top. I had a fleece I wore to keep me dry and warm while my undershirt dried. Kicked off my boots and warmed up some chicken noodle soup at the top and looked out west across the valley. They were some excellent views. Timed the hike perfectly. The hike down was just as it was getting warm, and the rocks had not begun radiating heat. I did go through quite a lot of water despite it being pretty cool. Amazingly though, on the way down, I saw MANY people hiking up in the heat of the day with absolutely no water on them. Not a good idea. I would have suggested otherwise to those people, but I would have spent the rest of the day doing so, and if there was a hydration emergency, I figured that other hikers would be around. Hopefully they will learn a lesson.

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...
