I chalk this up to Friday the 13th. Worst hike ever. First of all I stayed up until 4 a.m. watching the meteor shower in the front yard and later in the Phx Mtn Preserve so I got a pretty late start.
I started at the Hatchery TH with the intention of heading up Babe Haught then eastward on the General Crook trail (probably a stupid idea considering my previous experience with that trail further west) then down Horton Springs trail then back to the TH via the Highline.
The Babe Haught trail became completely covered in waist-high grass about 100 yards from the TH. I pushed on another 50 yards before hearing a rattle in the thick grass about 15 feet in front of me. No worries as I've been looking to hit up the Highline for a while. I went east on the Highline for about 1.5 miles before the trail degenerated into a similar situation: waist-high grass. I couldn't even see my feet. Needless to say I heard another rattler a little ways up the trail so I just decided to pack it in. Pretty weak. It was a pretty warm day that featured zero one-finger salutes on the highway unlike my trip to Flagstaff last week.

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...
