Rock Point - Navajo Lands

An 801 mile round trip weekend to Rock Point near the Four Corners region of Arizona to drop of a pick-up truck load of birthday and Xmas presents at the Navajo Lutheran Mission School courtesy of Altadena Middle School in Ahwatukee. This was part of an ongoing exchange program between the two schools.

Got on the road Friday night a little later than planned (2 fender benders at the newly installed photo radar on I-10 near airport created a 2 hour rush hour drive home from the city core), but did manage to arrive at our Kayenta Hampton Inn base camp before midnight. Brilliant moonlit evening made for an interesting drive...

We had an early Saturday morning breakfast at the Inn before making our way towards Rock Point. Lynn and I met the head teacher Delores at the pre-arranged time at the Mission School to unload my truck. Upon completion, we made our way across Chinle Wash to the upland slickrock areas to the west of Rock Point. Had a walkabout up the slickrock and over to the dunes.

On the way home, stopped at the Hibbard Site off the I-40 between Holbrook and Winslow to follow-up on a tip from PageRob...

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...
