Everyday Picketpost Mountain taunts me from the horizon just beyond my backyard. Today I fought back...

By no means an easy hike. More like a climb. I was on all-fours for most of the way up and on all-fives (butt included) for almost all of the way down. There came a point when I just accepted that my hands were going to get mutilated by rocks, cactus and catclaw. After awhile I just let it happen until I couldn't feel the pain anymore.

But the views from the summit are so worth it. I'm already planning on going back as I'd like to skip the true summit and work my way over to the area that overlooks Superior. I don't think I'm gonna do this hike alone next time though...

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...
