A beautiful day for this hike! This was my 3rd time, but a first for my son on his 14th birthday.

There was some kind of mountain biking race coming up the mountain, as we passed dozens of cyclists. They were all very polite, thanking us for stepping aside. One guy always has his dog run alongside him.

There are unfortunately several places where owners have not picked up their dog's business along the National Trail, so watch your step.

Hidden Valley is, as always, spectacular, with a little color mostly from brittlebush. Great views of downtown Phoenix and the East Valley (see photos). We squeezed through Fat man's pass ok. This is a must trail for anyone hiking South Mountain!

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...
