Train chasing, not storm chasing. Some pictures and video of the train pulled by steam locomotive UP844. This was the last passenger steam locomotive delivered to the Union Pacific Railroad back in 1944, and has only been out of active service for brief periods since then. Mostly used for railfan events and special commemorative trains such as this, celebrating the upcoming statehood centennials for New Mexico and Arizona. I caught up to it at Coolidge and followed it down to the mainline at Picacho, then on to Casa Grande, where it made a whistle stop before heading to points west. I didn't have my best camera with me, so I apologize for the quality. I have also included a link to a video of it leaving Picacho. Others are posted on my you tube page, including one of it speeding toward Tucson on the 10th.

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...
