Moderate to heavy rainfall in the east valley last night. This morning....hot and muggy on the trail. I was pouring sweat by the time I reached the pass from Meridian TH. Saw a tarantula crossing the trail on the way up. Reached the south end of the trail only to be covered in swarms of gnats. They stuck to my sweaty hairy arms, were in my face, and I certainly inhaled several dozen (extra protein?). Couldn't wait to be finished with this hike. Shaved 3 more minutes off last week's time and I feel good.

This is my gym. I have to travel down a bumpy road to get there. There are no treadmillls, no machines, and no personal trainers. I walk..I run..I breathe the fresh air. I can go any time I want, as much as I want and there is no membership fee.

Havasu Canyon Trail - Sep 15 2014
Down to the Colorado and back... blah blah.

On the way back out I took a long break on the patio of the restaurant. 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 or hurt a leg. He was finally able to limp out of the field and scurried off towards the lodge. So what started off as sort of comical turned into a sad case of animal abuse. At least they learned to close the gates. I noticed afterwards that they were unloading horse feed. I guess they were worried that the skinny, malnourished horse was going to, you know, get something to eat.
