I've wanted to do that last rappel ever since I laid eyes on it a few years back when I first started hiking WCC and today was finally the day. :D I went with a group of 7 who I mostly knew from the climbing gym and we set out that chilly morning and dropped into Sundance to perform some down climbing, rock hopping, stemming, swimming, wading, and a few rappels to get to that amazingly SWEET 180ft rappel. :sweat: Only 3 of us wore wetsuits and the others just suffered thru the chilly water and shaded narrows while waiting for their turn to rappel... :o The potential keepers near the end were full to the brim and most of the canyon is fairly straight forward and not too bad to traverse thru, just make sure to only bring people who are experienced at rappelling, down climbing, swimming in cold pools, and can handle such a high final rappel. :)

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...
