The desert claims the unwary. Today was an exercise in stupidity. No shovel, no chain, no rope, no serious jack, no detailed instructions to my "backup", two-wheel drive in the sand, dying cell phone. Talk about being goal-oriented? No kidding. It was supposed to be a pleasant stroll to a neat set of ruins. Instead the truck got stuck and I spent four hours hiking along a baking hardpan road with no shade and the thermometer in the truck when I left reading 121F. Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers. Random bilagaana showing up in front of their house on the county road had to throw them for a spin. Oh well, great folks. Got some tips for next time (like don't be stupid, as I read between the lines).
Think before you act indeed.

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...
