With my aunt from Norway visiting along with my Mom, I decided that this would be another relatively easy hike to get two older ladies out of the car to see an awesome spot at sunset. We got a little bit lost heading down the Baldwin Trail since when it drops into the Oak Creek flood plain I wasn't sure which way to go. So I just plowed straight to the creek over the river rocks, only to discover that there was no view and the creek was too deep to cross. Spotting somebody on the other shore, I yelled over and found out that easy crossing was just downstream. So we headed downstream a hundred yards on some use trails to discover we were at a great spot. Mom and aunt were in "dressy sandals" in anticipation for dinner, but they handled the rocks, sand, and water just fine. I didn't get to stay as long as I'd wanted because they were ready for dinner, but the light was still pretty good and it allowed for some nice photos while driving back into town.

On a downside, there was a guy who I'm going to stereotype as a European tourist who decided that it was appropriate to go swimming in his tighty-whiteys. This should never be allowed in public. :o

Seems most people in the area arrived from the other side of the creek, where there's a fee for parking. Seems dumb.

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...
