This hike provides great views, multiple waterfalls, and solitude amongst the pines and sycamores- all in a relatively short distance. This was the first day of hunting season and although there were hundreds of hunters in and about the Mazatzals this morning, nary a one was on this trail. The day began with the cloudy mist from a previous days rainfall still hugging the upper reaches of both Mt. Ord and Little Mt. Ord and the foliage was showing the early signs of decay that appears before the first frost. There were many fresh "signs" of wildlife; and, I was fortunate to spend some time with three deer who had been clever enough to avoid the rifles by using this trail. I promised myself to return sometime when those waterfalls are in full bloom-- they must be spectacular. Considering the short drive from the Valley, ready access in almost any kind of vehicle and mildly easy hiking this trail provides a pretty good return for your investment.

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...
