Took the south route in via 99th Ave which took almost 1.5 hours from Ahwatukee with one 5 mile error on a wrong turn. My first time through Maricopa since 1987, it's changed a "tad". Mobile is about the same. Returned via the powerline road which is faster/smoother/straight compared to 99th Ave. Though it's fun to watch the GPS as 99th is anything but what's plotted on maps. It's also a little more of a rally feel if you're into that stuff.

It was like Antarica on top, nothing beats sweating and freezing at the same time.

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...
