A great hike. I really enjoyed it. Perfect weather, and the breeze blowing up the canyon in the afternoon made descending more comfortable. Incredible how dry it is around the Catalinas, which are the wetter area in SE AZ this winter. Believe it or not, there was a little snow on a north aspect near the summit. Virtually no flowers or new green growth at all in the area, which is a contrast to areas that are similar looking north of Phoenix where things are greening up with the little amount of rain that area had.

It is because the Mount Elden Trail is just such a great trail, and the summit is pretty nice, too.

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...
