With Lynn and Skippy on a trek into the Maricopa Mountains in the Sonoran Desert National Monument => http://www.blm.gov/az/st/en/prog/blm_sp ... n_des.html

Took FR8002 from the Road Closure area at SR238 and headed west along FR8002B until it dead-ended at a primo campsite. Of trail north over the saddle to join onto the Butterfield Pass Trail and loop back to the Road Closure area.

Lots of green and only a handful of wildflowers. Looks like our promising wildflower season is going to wimp out.

Dumb-founded as we leave, 2 "rice-rockets" pull into the parking area. Dude jumps out with holstered gun and a set of bolt cutters to knock down the gate. Two "rice-rockets" head north along FR8002 in a cloud of dust presumably to do some shooting... :o

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...
