I had big plans for this hike that ended up falling through... I planned to hike to the falls and camp there the first night, then continue up to Deadman canyon on the divide trail and camp there the second night. well, I got to the falls and set up camp on Monday evening, ate an early dinner, and went and explored the waterfall area. After it got dark I headed back to camp to wind down. Really, really dark clouds started rolling in and, not having brought any rain gear or a rain fly for the tent (the forecast as of ealier that morning was mostly clear for the night and mostly sunny for the day), I started getting a bit worried. I called my mom (plug for Verizon) and had her check the forecast for me... There was a 50% chance of rain that night in Payson and probably a much better chance in the mountains above Payson. I sat and thought about it for a while and decided it would be a better idea to hike back to the truck. I had no way to stay dry and warm if it stormed that night and didn't want to risk it. The hike back was really cool, as night hikes (a weekly event for me) usually are.

After returning to the Barnhardt trailhead I drove up to the Rock Creek trailhead to explore that area the following day. Of course it didn't rain that night and I slept like a baby in the back of my truck.

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...
