It's been a while since I've payed a visit to Barry. I was making excellent time going up Goat Camp until I started to feel really lightheaded about 2 miles in. Took a brief rest and drank some water. I toned it down a bit, but was still able to keep a good pace along the rest of the trail. The Jeep trail seemed easier to follow this time around, and the service road was just as strenuous as I remember. I found the trip as a whole to be a butt-kicker. It was about 50 degrees throughout, and I think Mapdex said 46 for the actual peak. This made it much more comfortable than my previous July trips. :sweat:

The views from the top were incredible in all directions, especially my favorite - west. I listened to the whirring machinery, that didn't really need to be there, while I had lunch. On the way down, I took a quick side trip to the southern outcrop around the two mile marker. There was a chubby looking hawk perched up there, but it took off before I could get a good picture. I could also see a good ways up Black Canyon which has been on the back burner for a little bit.

Next time I'll head up Mesquite to even things out.

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...
