A hike to the top of the very distinctive peak northeast of Deming in the fall of 2004. Proper spelling is Cookes Peak. Summit elevation is 8408 feet. We camped at Cookes Spring and the site of old Fort Cummings the night before the hike. The fort was established in 1863 and manned by Buffalo Soldiers to protect wagon trains traveling between Old Mesilla and Tucson from Indian attacks.

This is a fairly tough hike with some scrambling and minor exposure. We followed an old mining road and bushwhacked on the way up, but were able to find an old trail on the way down, which got us back to the vehicles via another canyon.

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...
