I survived Rincon Peak for the third time! The last section redefines steep every time. It was very windy on top. I was glad that I brought my hat and gloves since I spent about 50 minutes on top.

During the last mile of the hike, we saw an Arizona Black Rattlesnake. One of the best Rattlesnakes to run into as they are very shy and they move away instead of rattling at you!

We were lucky and didn't see anyone else on the trail. I'm so glad that many people tend to do the same hikes over and over and leave the gems to us!

This is definitely one of the best hikes around Tucson.

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...
