The forecast of a light day at work the next day brought the opportunity for an overnight Mt. Graham trip. :D/ Five o'clock rolled around, and I hurled my tent, sleeping bag, food, etc. into my truck, and made record time up the Swift Trail, arriving at the trailhead for Moonshine just before sunset. A week's worth of heavy rain had saturated the Pinalenos, and the creeks and vegetation had responded well. I made it to the overlook during the last throes of sunset, and enjoyed the almost vertigo inducing view once again. I hiked back in the dark, while thoughts of wild beasts kept me singing out loud. I camped out near Grandview Peak that night, basking in the cool air, and watching Monsterquest on my portable dvd player. The next morning I was up early, and off to the Grant Creek area...

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...
