Wow, what an amazing place!!!!! Unfortunately the weather wasn't cooperating with us, but it was still TOTALLY worth going down for. Being from the east coast, I do miss the foliage in the fall, and going to Bassett gave me a little reminder of the beauty of fall. :FG:

Thankfully going through the 'foliage corridor' was relatively dry, so we were able to get lots of pictures. It wasn't until we started the climb that the weather started taking a turn for the worst. I was worried about my baby boy getting super soaked and cold (he doesn't like the cold and shivers :( ), but he was a total trooper and muddled through. Once we hit the flat part, he took off running to get back to the car ASAP!!!! I rolled my ankle so hard at one point on the flat part (go figure :roll: ), I was having a hard time keeping up with him. Thank God for ankles of steel!!!! We were completely DRENCHED by the time we got back to the car. :o I was SO glad to get dried off and into some warm, dry clothes!

We only saw ONE person the entire day on trail, and this guy was caching water for his stupid hunting trip the following week. He was carrying 14 liters of water!!! I picked up his pack, and HOLY COW!!!!! :wlift:

The road getting to the TH was a bit gnarly in a few spots, and I was even nervous in my Jeep maneuvering it, but we made it! :)

What a GREAT day overall, despite the weather. I would go back there anyday!!!!

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...
