Although we did arrive a bit early for the full explosion of Color in See Canyon (see Trish's trip log below), the Canyon was remarkably different than when I hiked it last Spring. My wife and I began the hike at the top then, this time Trish, Michelle and I started from the lower trailhead. The Canyon was beautiful, and I can see it almost being surreal in it's full glory. During our quick jaunt on the Highline, we stopped for a rest and heard drumming and singing in that recognizable Southern Plains style. Was there a Powwow in the area? This experience really lent a peaceful aura to the hike.
With the beautiful color and great hiking partners, the Canyon was a wonderful.
Afterwards, we enjoyed a leisurely car camp above Chevelon Canyon, and with Trish and Michelle's camp cooking, this was certainly a luxury camp! A nice fire, great conversation, and a beautiful sky led us all to dreamy contemplation, and I slept soundly despite the chilly 30's temp!
In the morning I took a short but fairly strenuous side trip down into Chevelon, scouting out a route for a future backpack. There is color beginning in Chevelon as well. I'll post pics of Chevelon's early glory in my personal gallery.
This was a great trip with wonderful hiking partners! Happy Birthday Trish!!

Lost? Hell, I ain't never been lost. But I have been a mite confused for a week or two.

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...
