I start out at the Marshal lake TH, which looks like a marsh now. This hike goes north to I-40. I was surprised that as I traveled down the trail, I was dropping elevation. After about 5 miles, I came along to the Sandy Canyon Trail. There was a lot of people at this point. There's a campground about a mile and a half away. This AZT section has a loop/by pass. You can hike through Flagstaff on the Urban trails or hike by the Walnut Canyon national monument. At some point both trails meet up north of I-40. I hit the intersection and went towards the urban trails. There was a bunch of people mountain biking along the way. As I got closer, I saw the effects of the Hardy fire. All of the ground was scorched and the trees were blackened. I made to the I-40 underpass and went back to the trail split. I then went to the Fisher Point for some pictures. I then returned back to the trailhead. The temps were very cool for the most part of the day. At times I was almost chilly.

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...
