Did I say never again? April 4th, 4 guys, 4 peaks...it's perfect. We got to the TH at 7:32a and started the trekk up Brown's Peak. I was feeling good and no one was lagging behind so I kept cruising. The guys got ahead of me up the chute (I was the slow one, stop laughing Denny) we were on Peak 1 at 8:40a. We stopped a few minutes and refueled and headed on to Peak 2 summiting at 9:25a. This was going too easy and the wind was calm up top? On to Peak 3. We started down the east side and Boone & Jonathan took the high road while Tyler and I took the low road. Take the low road. The other guys had to come down the death slide. :scared: A few Apache Helicopters came through pretty close at this point which was interesting to see. Tyler & I waited for the daring duo and then continued up to Peak 3 summiting at 11:10a. Still making amazing time we stopped to eat and rest up for Peak 4. The descent off Peak 3 was a bit tricky but we made it work. The climb up Peak 4 had a lot of small trees/shrubs to contend with. These were good for holding on to but painful if you didn't wear long pants. We summited Peak 4 at 12:30p and hung out and enjoyed the view. We made great time but this hiked still kicked our tails. :sweat: I think I have a route down now that's managable.

Morning after: This is a total body workout. I think every muscle I have is sore.

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...
