Slept in a little and drove up to lone pine saddle via El Oso. Its a long drive. But I was excited for my first shot at Four Peaks. Got to the trailhead and parked The Stang right next to the Wallymobile (he got there earlier to hike the mother lode). :scared: Good thing I decided on just hitting Brown's rather than the lode, had a sore throat so that didnt help me while hiking and was congested a little, no condition to do a lunatic hike like the lode.

The trail to the saddle is nice and enjoyable. The weather on the trail was awesome couldnt ask for better, but when I got past the saddle and starting heading up into the Chute it was downright cold and windy. It was also pretty chilly on top of the peak. Ate lunch and headed back down. Looked for Wally and his friend on the other peaks but I didnt see them.

Finally did Brown's Peak! Its about time. Great hike, will probably come back a few times over the summer on weekdays when the crowds thin out. The views are some of the best I've seen, but I'd like to see the view from the other peaks as well, particularly Peak 4, as then nothing would be blocking the view of the supes.

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...
