Wanted to see the cowboy dam in Peters Canyon that Dave1 and I missed during our February hike. I also wanted to check out Cottonwood Canyon north of Peters Mesa/Canyon. Took Bluff Springs trail to the Dutchman to Peters trail up to Peters Mesa. Went off trail from there to the cowboy dam, and over to and up Cottonwood Canyon. I started up towards Tortilla Mountain but ran out of time and energy to make it all the way there, Very steep rough terrain. I came back down the next canyon to the east of Cottonwood. I climbed some stuff going up Cottonwood I didn't want to go back down if I could avoid it. Once I got back down into Peters Canyon, I went south up the creek bed to an intersection with Peters trail. I found another cowboy dam in the creek bed just north of Peters trail. Interesting hike. Nice weather, although very cold in the early AM - windy. Wild flowers seem to be waning a bit.

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...
