A wonderful spring hike and Mazatzal intro with Nick and Allen. Flowers bloomed everywhere, and Barnhardt Creek cascaded below. Healthy post fire gambel oak growth brought promise of Willow Fire recovery. The sudden appearance of the mighty west face of Mazatzal Peak may have been the high point of the day. Blisters and the sun were our only adversaries. Walking through Y-Bar Basin, where even the emory oak regrowth seemed stunted, was for me both exciting and heartbreaking. The Y-Bar Trail was loaded with wildflowers and fallen logs. Definitely a tough stretch, but very pretty. In my sleep deprived state, I left my gps behind twice and had to run back and get it. D'oh!

Dinner at Guayo's mexican restaurant in Globe was a well earned, delicious end to the day.

A great hike in wild country with good friends: what could be better? :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...
