Drove out Box Canyon Road to get a closer look at the Florida Fire in the Santa Rita Mountains, which had begun with a lightning strike on Florida Peak on July 7th. It was becoming quite intense by this point, and eventually spread south to cover much of the range from the Crest eastward into the lower canyons. It also burned over to Wrightson and Josephine Peak. There was some burn into Madera Canyon, but much of that was from backburn operations.

The day these pictures were taken shows it burning strong between Florida Saddle and McCleary Peak.

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...
