I set out for a loop using Marshall Gulch (535' AEG & 2.4 mi RT), Wilderness of Rocks (550' AEG & 3.85 mi), Mount Lemmon (1870' AEG & 4 mi), and the Aspen Trail (1.2 mi & 0' AEG), with a side trip to loop around with the Meadow trail (260' AEG & .8 mi), also the additional hike back up on the Mount Lemmon Trail with a side trip to the L.O. ( 1.25 mi). I walked to the gate, but didn't go to the true summit as I had dilly dallied on the hike and it was getting late. All in all, a spectacular day with incredible views. Another great hike with lots of nice pine smells, but no oaks. The incredible views from the Mount Lemmon trail more than made up for that. Another great hike in the Catalinas. Hardly saw anyone, and as I was getting back to my car I heard whip-por-whils, and another bird that I think is a warbler and makes me think of my time back east in hardwood forests. Awesome hike.

I used HAZ GPS tracks and summit elevations to get my AEG and mileage. I must say, the mileage seems right on, but I am surprised how high the AEG is. I believe our GPS tracks to be mostly accurate, and as such, that is a pretty good loop and one with fantastic rewards for the effort.

It is because the Mount Elden Trail is just such a great trail, and the summit is pretty nice, too.

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...
