This is a great little hike to get out of the heat if you don't have air conditioning, like me. There were an abundance of wildflowers in bloom: lupine, roses, monkeyflower, pussytoes, several in the aster family, geranium, iris, starry false solomon's seal, paintbrush, skyrocket, and a vine with red trumpet blooms (on the left side of the start of the trail). The ferns are lush, the birds are singing, and there is water in the springhouse (use a good filter). Be sure to look all around the highest spring for the pictographs and petroglyphs. There are bees and wasps around the spring, so be careful if you are allergic. This place gets alot of traffic on the weekends, but during the week it is not busy.

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...
