Made it to the top in about 2 hours and 40 minutes. As others have said, this is definitely a great conditioning hike. I did the first mile or so trying to catch up with someone else who eventually turned around. Was also passed by an APS truck on the way up, and a Tacoma on the way down. A bit of snow and yellow leaves at the higher reaches. The views from the top were probably some of the best I've ever seen. If it wasn't for the clouds, I probably would have been able to make out the White Tanks... And Four Peaks. Took a couple side trips on the way down, and found a total of four benchmarks. I would like to do some more trips in the Mazatzals, regardless of my terrible pronunciation.

This trip also sets me ahead of my 300 mile goal for the year. :D

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...
