Awesome hike in the evening, so parking wasn't an issue. My wife, Suz, Sadie (Suz's dog), Buster (our dog) and myself spent a blissful 1.5 hours checking out the lower part of the canyon, exploring for fall colors and investigating the reflections in still pools along the creek. Lots of dogs and people coming out when we arrived, but the numbers dropped off noticeably after entering the wilderness area. What a great little canyon - I can't believe I'd never done it before.

Heading to the trailhead in downtown Sedona (ugh!) both Suz and I were almost rammed by one of the "Tread Lightly Go Green Biodiesel" Hummers pulling out of a side street. I really did hope she'd hit our car - then we could get a new one! The drive up from Sedona reminded me why I don't go there except in the dead of winter...

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...
