I traveled to the Sedona area in early September this year. I had good information from the web about how to get to Cathedral Rock and missed the turn anyway, but eventually got to the spot and got a park in the lot right away, it was mid-week. A bit awesome, and overpowering at first sight. I really didn't think I would make it, but I persevered on to the (top) but the climb was scary and steep at least toward the end. There were rock markers, but unfortunately I didn't follow them well. I took a lot of water, but had already hiked 10 miles in Boynton Canyon earlier that day and got dried out and was completely spent by the time I got to the plateau were it seemed as far as anyone was going. I rested a good long time and took some really great photos of The Rock up there! The way down was equally scary, but I made it without any slips. Did I mention I'm scared of heights? I'm from Washington, DC and was on my summer vacation in Arizona. I'm including a photo or two. (as seen above)

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...
