Temps were perfect for a long day in the Supes. I only saw a couple groups of backpackers alll day and a large group of college age kids down at Dripping Springs-- not sure what they were doing. It looked like some sort of school or church group.

Coffee Flat is in much better shape than in the past. In the past I've opted to hike in the wash for large sections to avoid the sharp stuff but there was no need this time. Its also much more followable than before-- even on the private land section and all the way to Dripping Springs. Red Tanks was also in much better shape than last time I did this loop. I made much better time than I was expecting-- about 8 hrs. It drizzled rain for a few minutes two or three times but that was about it.

Awesome day.

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...
