Lead a Crew of Venture Scouts on a bike ride along the Young Rd from US260 junction to the Salt River Bridge at Roosevelt Lake. We started in the snow on the Rim and descended through Young and camped overnight at Reynolds Creek. The only failure was on my bike, a tear in the tire kept allowing rocks to puncture the tube. We went to the Pleasant Valley Tire shop and they affixed a radial tire patch to the tear and gave us some spares for free. No further problems!

Day two was a long acent over the Sierra Ancha, then a neat long and fast downhill to the Salt River. The descent was so fun that when we got to the bottom, we loaded the bikes and hauled them back to the top and did it again. The hills were full of poppies, got a few shots.

Fun trip!

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...
