There may be sometime in my life when I recognize that taking various medications changes one's physical self in a major way. Last week I went with Dan and his grand daughter up cardiac hill and down to the Lower Barks Canyon. I fought my way down that series of boulders and bush whack material finally gettig to the Dutchman trail and the entire experience knocked me out of everything for an entire day.

So, my neighbor Bob had not ever been to Hidden Valley through Fat Man's Pass so I thought that would be e much easier hike for this week. Wrong again. I have been up that Mormon trail many times. Parts are a bit steep but nothing major. This time I felt like I was climbing the Matterhorn!!! I was told the medications would make me lathargic and fatigued but did I listen??? Of course not. I certainly paid the price! I guess the major rule would be, if you are at all sick, don't do the climbing hikes.

Anyway, Bob enjoyed the Hidden Valley and all the rock formations and we did have a good day. When I returned home I hit the bed for a couple hours and did the jacuzzi and the mineral ice and today feel half way better.

I like to go from the tunnel end and end up through the fat man's pass. Everyone writes this one up but it is a very scenic 4 miles--basically right in the middle of Phoenix!

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...
