A very enjoyable "exploratory" hike with John over Byous Butte Saddle#1 to try and gain access to upper Hewitt Ridge at 4200 feet and to locate the preferred hiking route to gain access to Hackberry Butte high point at 4230 feet. We did not succeed in reaching upper Hewitt Ridge due mainly to my assessment of just not feeling confident my chosen route today was the least risky, but we did accomplish reaching two of my planned destinations to Hewitt Ridge Lower Saddle.. http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=133093 and then proceeded on to reach another planned destination at Hackberry Butte Lower Saddle (which would allow access along the Hackberry Butte Ridgeline to the butte highpoint).. http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=133108 .

Both of these saddles had excellent near and distant views south/east/west into "Millsite Canyon" and beyond to the "western Superstition Wilderness". More exploratory hiking and route finding to be continued in the late fall/winter 2010 and into the winter/spring 2011. All good reasons to plan more Byous Butte campouts at Camp Grasshopper! :D

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...
