U-Bar cut through Barbershop Canyon to Barbershop Trail to Houston Bros. and back to Pinchot Cabin. This loop rules and I'll definitely do it again.

Barbershop Canyon is beautiful and easy to navigate. This so-called "off-trail" canyon is not so off-trail and almost completely lined with game trails. It appears the game trails have been used enough by hikers that they're pretty permanent.

Rains the night before made water even more abundant in this canyon where water can already be found year round. We even came across a waterfall on the side wall.

Had we not made a wrong turn on the U-bar, this hike would have been closer to 16 miles. I recommend this hike to anyone looking for solitude or to gain some experience in less traveled places.

The coyotes were getting crazy this morning. I'd never heard such ruckus from them in the daytime before. One finally appeared to us after his conversation with one that sounded much farther away. We also had a few elk sightings near the end of our day.

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...
