Didn't take the summit trail, but I don't think the route taken merits a new trail submission.

Started from the lower Agassiz parking lot, headed up through Dutchman, past the crash site, and took Allison Clay up to the ridgeline. Snow seemed very stable, especially heading up Allison Clay. There were some stretches where the spike of my ice axe wouldn't even break through. After 3 false peaks, made it up to the summit.

Started back down and followed some snowshoe tracks that took us down a different route than what we came up. Unfortunately, following these tracks led us across a scree slope with snow shoes on.

Temperature never got above 20° from what we saw, the real killer was the wind, especially going up Allison Clay (lost feeling in the downhill hand a couple times). If you're going to do this in the winter, make sure you're prepared.

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...
