Met up with Devon (DBMooner) for a morning hike up to Flatiron. We started at the Mining Camp TH at 6:30am. Clouds threatened rain on the way up. Blue skies appeared for short time followed by more clouds and a few scattered sprinkles. Made it up to Flatiron mostly dry. We watched as the fog started to roll in. On the way down we had to break out the rain gear. The rain made for a very slippery descent. Extra care and time was taken to avoid slips and falls. The fog crept its way into the canyon and blocked our view of the Flatiron. I would have taken more pics but my battery died. I will post a couple photos of the fog that I took with my cell phone. All in all, I enjoyed this new experience of hiking Flatiron in the rain. I can now say that I've hiked this route in rain, snow, fog and night. Also, got to meet a fellow HAZer with whom I enjoyed some good trail chat and storytelling.

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...
