Third time's the charm: 1st time- Christmas week'09 I was camping under Byous Butte. Nonot and I had planned for Christmas Day, a variation of my loop hike "Byous Butte Loop w/Hewitt Ridge Cyn Hike" with a side trip along the way to summit Hackberry Butte if time permitted, but time did not permit. 2nd time- On 4/15/10 I was again camping under Byous Butte this week. Johnr1 and I had a plan#1 for a remote off trail day hike back in from Byous Butte Saddle#1 to try and gain the summit of Hewitt Ridge. We had a plan#2 to summit Hackberry Butte. After further assessing the risks for me to proceed with a summit of Hewitt Ridge based on my previous planned approach.. http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=133102 , I chickened-out and we proceeded with plan#2. By the time we reached what I thought was Hackberry Butte and its ridge line approach, it was just too daunting a ridge hike for that late in the day.. http://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP=133108 (only after discussing my interest in another summit attempt with ssk44 did I realize that this previous ridge line and summit was really not Hackberry Butte at all, but rather a ridge and summit a distance south.. :oops: ). 3rd time- I turned the trip planning over to ssk44 and he easily found the best off trail hike approach for my allusive Hackberry Butte Summit 4230 and I was off again to give it a go and this time successfully :D

This moderate two mile one way hike with a relatively easy to navigate off trail segment was a real winner and worth the wait. I enjoyed it enough to issue a new HAZ hike description with posted GPS Hiking and Driving Tracks, and my pic set to further document with captions the fun, scenic, and historic interest of it all. I do hope that others with consider giving it a try.

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...
