Swift Trail (Hwy 366) was reopened this morning and as much as I wanted to get up higher into the pines, I first just had to hike into Marijilda Canyon and see the damage from the recent fire. I was shocked to see that Noon Creek was dry at the first crossing, I've never seen the creek dry before! I then headed up to the T and took the RTM trail up to the saddle and then down to the first big overlook. I was surprised to see that the "Marijilda Fire" never even entered Marijilda Canyon, it was Swift Canyon that burned. Happy, I turned around and headed back up and continued on down finishing the Noon Creek loop.

Lots of clouds kept the sun at bay and wildlife sightings on this trip were - 2 garter snakes, 3 tarantulas, many frogs & tadpoles in the pools and a white-tail doe on the drive home.

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...
