Went to Family Friday Night event at the amphitheater at The Gateway with C&G. Started at 4:30 and had impressive turn out for the middle of a dust storm. Several kids but more adults. Good talk about superstitions' volcanoes and magma, lava, tubes, etc. Good eruptive demonstrations with bottles and toothpaste and such. Caroline brought her binoculars and loved passing around the rocks in baggies to people around her. The speaker talked about porous rocks at Brown's Ranch and the future trailhead there. There was a lava drop on loan from Sunset Crater that was passed around.

Caroline bolted to the nature trail when some older girls went that way. Lots of play ensued and testing each others' knowledge of jumping cholla vs. chain cholla (which really impressed me). Taking the true/false quiz and I.D. the animal/plant on the nature trail stations.

Was a fun evening even in the dusty air.

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...
