The hike, FR213 -> JF -> Hoolie Bacon -> up Cedar Basin Canyon -> check out Cedar Basin -> jump on the overgrown pack trail up and over down to Tortilla Creek -> Tortilla Creek back to Hoolie Bacon -> return back to the trail head.

Great hike on a cool April day with light snow showers off and on the entire trip. Cedar Basin Canyon was great and the basin area was beautiful. To our surprise, we ran right into an old corral right in the basin which I wasn't expecting since I hadn't seen anything on it or read about a corral in that area during my planning for this hike. Although we were able to locate the old pack trail that goes from the basin to Tortilla Creek, it was badly overgrown especially on the steep climb down. Tortilla Creek around Dogie Spring was really nice. Other than seeing 2 guys on a Polaris driving in on FR213 we had the entire area to ourselves. This area is great for solitude.

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...
