Did Cave Trail from Peralta...GPS saved me a few times from getting off trail out there! Visited Geronimo Cave, then Weaver's Needle Overlook, then the saddle.

The most fun part of the trip was on my way back to the trailhead. I took Peralta Trail back from the saddle, and less than a half mile from the cars I heard waterflow. I went off trail just a few steps and found two nice swimming holes! Beautiful clear water, secluded, small waterfall going into the pool. I started off just taking a few pictures, but then couldn't resist. I jumped in all the way! At first it was cold :o , but once I had my head wet it was really nice :lol:

I'd highly recommend finding it before it's gone. Just head up Peralta for about 0.4 miles, and listen for the water on your left, and descend a few feet to the pools. Nice to see the green out there as well. A few wildflowers are just starting to sprout up too.

Difficulty (for me): :sweat: :sweat: (of 5)

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...
