This wasn't so much of a hike as it was a bushwhack through the hills and temperate rain forest outside of Pittsburgh, set up by my friend Ed, who did the Reavis Ranch north hike with me back in March 2007. Ed likes to do a lot of "extreme sports", one of which is hashing, an activity that involves jogging thru the forest We started down the road from where he�s staying, along some railroad tracks, thru a drainage culvert, then directly up a muddy hill at a +50-60% grade. There was some nice scenery in the more remote parts, but also some walking thru neighborhoods. At one point we walked thru a 200 yard long drainage culvert in a narrow gulley. Good thing I always carry my headlamp. The shade through the entire hike was the best part, mainly because it's a good contrast from what's out here now near Phx. The highlight of the hike was seeing a mama turkey and her chicks. Lots of turkeys these days in PA, from what I hear and saw for myself this day.

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...
