It was a beautiful day for this mega hike. More than 4,000 feet of elevation gain and close to 5,000 in accumulated elevation in 18 miles. On my last trip there in October 2004 it was very windy at the peak. Not so on this hike. Cool air, sunny skies and very light breeze made for perfect hiking conditions. Sun_Hiker and I did this in 10 hours (she a little faster than me) with some breaks along the way and lunch at the base of the peak. Highly recommended for fit hikers.

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...
