A short & super sweet technical literally under the highway. :D There's a few 10-20ft drop that are either tricky down climbs or easy rappels depending on your preference and availability of anchoring options. I rappelled one of them from an embedded old engine block, another had a handline tucked under the pile of rocks that made up the chockstone, and the other two I just dropped into the sand below. The 45ft drop was pretty sweet and I setup my 100ft rope since that's much safer than doing that as a handline. :o With so much red sandstone canyons in the area, it was nice to hop in a white crumbly Entrada Sandstone canyon. Once the canyon opens up, I veered left and scrambled up the cliffs and hiked cross country back to the highway while trying not to destroy too much cryptobiotic soil by walking in washed whenever possible. ;)

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...
