Weaver's needle before sunrise.

Living in Southeast Mesa has its advantages. I'm 30 minutes or less away from countless hiking destinations. I like to challenge myself to see what I can accomplish before going to work. Today I knocked out Fremont Saddle via Peralta Trail. Arrived at the trailhead at 5:50am. Jumped out of the vehicle and hit the trail with my headlamp on. At about 2/3's the way up, I turned off the headlamp and continued towards the saddle. Reached the saddle at 6:40, snapped a couple pics of the Needle, then started back down. The sun had just started to pop up over the mountains, I spotted a photo op and positioned myself to catch the sun rising through the eye of a natural arch that is near the top. The photo turned out pretty cool. I stowed the camera and continued down. I reached the trailhead at 7:20, a little later than I had anticipated. Hustled home, showered and got ready for work. Good hike/run.

P.S. - No other hikers or cars at the trailhead from beginning to end.

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...
