Did this one as a night hike with a buddy, totally different experience at night than it is during the day. We both agreed that we had an eerie feeling during a good portion of the hike. I nearly stepped on a Rattlesnake on the 2nd Water trail, definitely jumped back when I noticed the guy a few inches from my feet. Didnt really rattle or anything just slithered away when he noticed us there. I actually love seeing snakes so Im glad when I do see them, but that doesnt mean it doesnt get my adrenaline pumping whenever I run into one.

This has become a favorite hike for me when I only have a few hours but want to get away. If your curious as why they call them the Superstitions just go hiking at night there in the summer.

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).

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...
