This was an afternoon hike with my brother Ryan, while camping at Riggs Lake. It was slow going on the west side of the peak, as we climbed over endless fallen trees. We got to the top, where I was surprised to find a register in a plastic container. We looked around for a trail heading down the peak, but didn't see anything. We headed back down on a different route, and found the little drainage, which took us straight back to the campground. I ran into the campground host on the way back, and talked with him for awhile. He was a wealth of information and had a lot of stories about the area. An easy, yet enjoyable peak-bagging it was!

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...
