Car camped at the trailhead to get an early start. I didn't get much sleep as the dogs stayed up all night, but we were on the trail before 5 AM. This hike reminds me of a mini Icehouse Canyon trail. Parts of the trail/road are steep with less than perfect footing. Having a trekking pole is definitely a plus on this trail. Coming down wasn't as bad as I thought it might be, although I did a little skiing. The area near the summit is very nice. Tall pines, windy. Views along most the trail are good too. Great workout hike.

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...
