Great morning for this hike. The sky was crystal clear (actually black when I began) and remained that way all morning. The washes still had the auburn and burnt orange ferns left over from the Fall. I suppose I enjoy early morning hikes in the Goldfields at this time of year because of the shapes and shadows cast by the rising sun on what otherwise may seem a harsh landscape. At the arroyo I climbed the eastern slopes of slickrock thinking that there may be some way to ride the ridge south, but it turned out to be a "wash" (no pun intended). The "spire", with shadows cast by the rising sun, appeared much like a howling pup, reminding me of what the Westies were missing. Having been groomed this weekend the wished to stay that way for a few more days.

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...
