Took the trip this weekend. We started at the Chevelon Crossing campground and headed for the creek. We made it to Durfree Crossing the first day and set up camp. The trail is fairly easy to get off of as we found ourselves many times. So after a late start and passing a good looking campsite about 2 miles back we were happy to find the camp at Durfree. We spent the next day scouting out some areas further down the creek, but the increasing fresh signs of bears forced us to turn back. We decided to keep our camp at Durfree and explore that area some more. Hiked up a ridgeline behind our camp to get some nice views from the top of the canyon. Headed out the next morning, getting lost again even after marking the trail on the way in. The weather was absolutely perfect, nice and cool at night. It was a great trip. :D

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...
