Hiked the loop from Dow Springs trailhead minus the KA hill section. This cuts over a mile and the only major climb out of the hike. A group of us did the full loop last June. Late May or early June is propably the best time to do this hike. The difference was on April 23 water lilys were just starting to sprout (vs. in bloom in June 2005) the Oak trees are not yet showing buds (vs fully leafed out in June) and the roses looked like dead bushes (vs. being in bloom in June). Other plants were in bloom in early June ... nothing during this trip. This is still a nice hike with a lot of variety.

We used the Overland Trail to loop back prior to KA hill section. This historical road would be almost invisable if not for the cairns and postings ... I will post a photo with both. We saw several deer on this section of the hike ... I expect any group not making a lot of noise will enounter wildlife on this section of the Overland Road (it appears to have few hikers).

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...
