So somehow I committed myself to hiking with a crazy man for a really long distance. :D For about the first 20 miles, it was almost not noticeable that we were actually hiking, the scenery was so incredibly beautiful, it totally distracted us. Once out of the oooh-ing and aaah-ing of the narrows sections, things started feeling a bit more difficult. I felt like I had 5 lb. weights on each one of my ankles pretty much the entire trip. With the caked on mud & sand & wetness, my legs got more of a workout on a no elevation hike than they do on some of my crazy elevationers! :o I happened to find a section of quicksand and quickly went up to my knees. John kept threatening that the next batch I stepped in, he was pushing me down. But I think this one was too early in the hike, and he needed company for a little while longer. Lucky for me I never found anymore! :GB:

This definitely got me ready & pumped for my rim cubed in a couple weeks. I think it might seem like cake after this hike. :-k ;)

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...
