Not the traditional hike up to the top, rather a loop around the mesa.

Went to check out the lower southeast slopes of Black Top Mesa.

I wanted to match up Barry Storm's location photos of where Adolph Ruths remains where found by Tex Barkley back on Jan 8th 1932. It's amazing that virtually nothing has changed in terrain yet the vegetation has a different feel. Saguaro's are now more abundant in the surrounding area. Mesquites seem fewer and far between.

Ely stated that the earthquake of May 1887 destoyed the great spring at Marsh Valley. Though a short distance away this may have altered the habitat and fauna of the area a bit.

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...
