Hike #11 - Pueblo Pintado Chaco Culture Outlier Ruin (1 mile, 1 hr 30 min) - Inspiration to visit this site came from a vintage aerial photograph taken by Anne Lindbergh in a plane flown by her husband Charles. Today Pueblo Pintado is a squalid and depressing Chapter House (quite the contrast from pristine Lake Valley Chapter and others) with an interesting Great House Ruin. Some disturbing thoughts from the locals written in the trail head registry. To me the featured high light is midden after midden containing multiple examples of large pottery sherds, Rob seemed to win his argument with the turtle (or was one of the Buffalo Burgers slightly sushi style?) and was able to give us a lesson in Chacoan pottery styles. The Chacoan Verdi on Amarillo sherds (Meso-American influence?) were most interesting => http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=141666

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...
