We set out this weekend to do a small hike with our friends Sylvia and Dave. Sylvia is just recovering from foot surgery so we decided a 3 mile flat hike would do the job so set out on the Blevins Trail. Setting off in a counter clockwise direction after a quarter of a mile saw a big "Phoenix" sign blended into the side of a mountain - well although a similar "Hollywood" sign might have been better but it was reassuring to know we in the right place.

We encountered a lot of joggers and people riding mountain bikes on this trail who also seemed to be going on to the connecting trails. After a short while we reached the corner of Moonrock and Blevins where it would have been easy to go straight on as there was not much of a signpost there, anyway turned left (heading north here). About half way round we past the No So Trail, at this stage it was a basic hike with little exertion. Turned north at Meridian Trail and headed back to where our truck was parked.

If you like looking at cholla then this is the trip for you!

Sylvia's first walk in a long time - mission accomplished!

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...
