Well, I probably have a new favorite hike in southern Arizona. This trail is just amazing. The wildlife, flowers, scented forest, cool temps.... :wink:

Saw a large coati by the trailhead. On the way in, what could only be a large wild turkey ran out of the brush and down the road alongside my car for about 100 feet before veering back off up a ridge. I almost bumped into a majestic gold eagle that was on some low rocks alongside the trail..this was a special treat. More lizards along the creek than I have ever seen (and I live in Tucson folks). Finally, the best wildflower display around.

Had to turn around at the Shingle Mills trail because of threatening weather. Ended up finishing in the rain.

A side trip to the summit of Webb Peak is very worthy of your time.

Final note of advice...wear long pants regardless of the temps. There is a lot of poison ivy along this trail.

What a day.

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...
