I took this trail to the spot where it disappears and turned back, as planned. It's really a shame that this trail disappears where it does because for the last half mile, the canyon starts to get really narrow and the scenery become very interesting. I was wondering if hiking up the creek bed might be a viable option if you intend to do a loop hike to either the South Fork or Gold Ridge trail. While the weather was starting to get hot, once you get into the narrow canyon section, the air gets noticably cooler. Deer Creek was running pretty good, and I noticed some minnows in one pool, meaning this must be a perennial stream. The trail is very easy to follow until it (very abruptly) disappears and stays level for the most part, except for a few intermittent climbs above the stream bed. This seems like a decent trail to take kids on (be careful thru the washouts) and on my way out I passed a couple going in with an infant in a baby backpack.

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...
