Woohoo, had the day off from work and threw a canyoneering trip together the night before and managed to get one unemployed friend to join me. :D I really wanted to hit this sweet canyon again while the flow was good and was rewarded to 2-3 times the flow as last time. :GB: This time instead of doing the upper extended start, we just looped around to the top of Big Kahuna Falls and dropping in at that amazing falls. It was flowing very nicely and a great way to break in my new pair of 5.10 canyoneers. :) We again crossed the trail and rock hopped our way down canyon to drop into the lower narrows with a few sweet waterfall rappels in there that were also flowing quite well. Enough to spook us a bit and give us a healthy respect for the power of water. :o After the narrows, we had some rock hopping & down climbing before we reached the exit where the trail comes very close to the canyon. Dropped gear after enjoying this amAZing canyon again and hiked out on a canyon buzz. :GB:

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...
