So you can hike this through the thorns or through the softer poison ivy. Totally up to you.

I like to camp up at Fry Park or what I call Flagdona. Back to the trees, front to the field and mountain, mix it up if you get the feeling. This time around we brought some "Wait, where do go make bathroom?" church people up and Saturday they looked to me to lead a hike of some kind.

Well I looked on my trusty interweb phone and found that HAZ Joe liked Fry Canyon and it's only about 1/2 mile from here.
While we hike that way I can download the route then pull it up on Backcountry Navigator.
"Can't we just drive instead."
Um sure but we can only take one vehicle (my made up rules) so find a place for the 9 of you to sit or hang from.

With everyone situated I drove taking all the bumps towards the TH and found why many of the roads were now closed up there. The forest site says for maintenance but it's really so 80% of the forest can be cut down. Sad and ugly.

We began hiking from the top where it's all fieldsy and spacious and then stuck to a game trail from there. It got choked up pretty quickly with things that go poison and poke. Eventually I told the stragglers to turn around as I and a couple others that were keeping up just decided to climb right the up out.
Once at the top we hiked though the forest turned field to the road and then back to the vehicle.
At least we had more time to set up for a great sunset (only time I felt led to take pics, the others I stole).
The next day I took some over to Hidden Cabin and then to a much better wide open hike down a drainage in Howard Pocket.
May he guide you through the wilderness : protect you through the storm;
May he bring you home rejoicing : at the wonders he has shown you;

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...
