After a week in the Pacific Northwest in the land of Burgerville, I needed a little hike to combat some of that deep fried goodness.

This was an interesting hike for me - I was trying to go for time, so I couldn't take any pictures on the way up. This took incredible discipline for someone like me on a trail like this.

Perhaps if I had been taking pictures, I would've thought to get a picture of whatever it was that bit me. Yep, just below Josephine saddle I felt what seemed like a large needle stab my left chin and I screamed. I instinctively wiped whatever it was off my leg and then shrugged it off and kept on going, but with a little stabbing pain with every step. Whatever it was bit through my sock and caused a nasty infection. The bite is almost all better at five days later, BTW.

Anyway, I did get distracted, with the pain and the beauty, and so I took a little extra time and ended up with 3:30 up, a nice little nap and a beer at the top, and 2:45 down. So much for doing it for time. Maybe next time...

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...
