Beautiful day for hiking. I got a late start, around 11am. Passed two guys that had just returned from the summit and said they did the round trip in 4hrs, 4 minutes. I knew I was in trouble because they appeared to be in much better shape than me!

Anyway, I headed out and quickly realized that I wasn't going to make it all the way up. From the valley, I wasn't prepared for the lack of oxygen and unrelenting steady climb. Nonetheless, I perservered for about 3 hours, taking ample breaks and enjoying the cool breezes on the mountain before deciding to head back down the mountain.

My GPS showed that I made it to about 11,000 feet, and that was enough for me. I was moving too slow.

A prescribed burn on Mt. Kendrick obscured some views and probably didn't help my quest for oxygen.

On the way down, I passed the plaque remembering the crashed bomber, and decided that would by my destination next time I hike this mountain.

All-in-all, a good day. Other than the two guys in the parking lot, only saw one other person all day.

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...
