Just took a quick trip after work (3:37PM) up as far as the Owls Roost. I had intended to do my usual 3 miles but I got started late and needed to get home to water some outside plants before it got dark. For the first little bit going up the east side it smelled like burning trash, YUCK. Fortunately the smell dissipated. There were lots of people out on the trail as usual. I don't mind it so much but I get nervous around the runners as sometimes they sneak up on you and you zig when you should zag.
It looks like they're moving rocks around by having hikers move them to different spots as they go up or down. They actually have these little signs posted to pick up a rock and where to carry it. I thot that was a neat idea.
Anyway, it was a great day for a quick hike in the North Valley.

Oh, and once in awhile, don't forget to look back at the trail you've traveled.

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...
