took a few others into the dreaded Peters canyon for an off trail adventure. this time, we were pushing daylight so opted to climb out of the creek a ways before Pistol Canyon. It was the easiest off trail approach to Peter's Mesa according to the map and after an hour of catsclaw boxing and route finding, we made it to the Mesa and descended to Charlebois for the night. We were "rocked" to sleep for a few hours with stiff winds and blowing rain. Awoke to a chilling 38 degrees and came out on Peter's trail proper under cloudy skies and cold breezes. Although I did not get to finish the loop, the views from the Mesa allowed me to spy some new routes, so I'll be back (the te-wanator)

I was amazed to see Charlebois trough is completely dry - so much for the forest service and their pet minnows... :(

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...
