First time doing the White Tanks and I must say, this mountain regional park is awesome. Very easy to get to - great facilities and very well marked trails.

I did the loop - Ford Canyon to Willow to Mesquite - almost a 11 mile trip with a gain of aboout 1300'. I had heard that this loop was a "serious challenge" but did not find that all to be true. I couldn't believe though with a metro pop. exceeding 5 million that I only saw a few people - and that was mainly at the end or begining of the loop.

Pay your $5.00 to the nice man at the gate. Request a map and you're on your way. Really nothing to report other then you'll reach your highest elevation (2850') just past the Dam. The scenery is so so - must be great though after a rain fall!

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...
