After doing Spur Cross, I drove down the road and hit the Ruin Site. It had been threatening to rain for almost half the day, but never did. The Ruins were very cool and covered a pretty good size area. Must have been quite the compound in it's day.... The Hike was easy and once again, I brought the camera, soooo.....

Couldn't decide whether to post all of the Informational Signs and decided that maybe some people would actually like to read them, so I did. There's alot of them though. :sweat:
It's going to take me longer to post them all than the whole trip took. :lol:

After hitting Sears Kay, I was thinking that the Sunset might be worth sticking around for, but wanted to leave that particular area because of the huge power lines. So I drove down Bartlett Road for about a half a mile and parked in an ATV Recreation Area and climbed a small hill. Couldn't get the actual Sun from there, but the light was hitting the landscape pretty well. I did get a few pics of the actual Sunset, but ended up having to move again due to those same power lines. The last three were taken at the intersection of Bartlett Road and Cave Creek. :)

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming, "Wow What a Ride!"

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...
