Great butt-kicker. Definitely the most challenging hike I've done anywhere around the valley. Surprisingly, trail above falls was not as crowded as we expected for a Sunday afternoon. Weather was perfect in the mid-70s. Hike/scramble/climb up to the Flat Iron was challenging, tiring and very rewarding. Almost as rewarding as the beer and burger that followed. California Poppies beginning to bloom down in the basin. On the hike down we heard some crazy, loud, repeating woodpecker-sheep-like sound echoing from the canyon below. Eventually located the source and found it to be a very small (about 2") toad in the small pool at the bottom of the large trickling water fall. Couldn't believe how loud and odd sounding that tiny little toad was.

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...
