I really enjoyed this hike. The dark ominous cloud play combined with dashes of sunlight set a great tone. I hadn't had a good wilderness experience in a month so I was stoked to get out too. Only saw four other hikers, so the solitude factor was excellent. I started out the day getting up late, then taking a good two hours surfing HAZ trying to figure out what I wanted to do. Hitting a pristine spot to shoot sunset was a must, but I also wanted to hit a good hike in an area I hadn't been to yet, so the plan to hit La Barge Canyon View and then shoot the front range of the Supes near LDSP was hatched. This hike really fit the bill too, not too short, not too long, perfect to fill up my afternoon time frame. The whole hike has really good views, but of course the view at the end is just rediculous. I didn't go all the way out to the end of the ridge, but stopped at the western highpoint. Had a great time up there taking it all in. Got a little rain and a little hail on the way down. Just a great hike. Left with ample to time to hit my photography plans on my way back too.

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...
