This is a very special segment of the Salt River Canyon Wilderness. The river at this location has tremendous character with intricate river bends, bluffs, cliffs, and lush vegetation. The primary access to this location is via Shute Springs Creek, however it may be possible to hike upstream from the Highway 288 Bridge. The hike up from the bridge would be 1.8 miles and will require swimming and/or wading. Hiking to this location via Shute Springs Creek is a pleasant and rewarding hike through seldom visited remote backcountry with great views along the entire route. Shute Springs Creek must be bypassed near the Salt River due to technical pour-overs. Backtrack a little ways to an obvious saddle on the east side of the canyon and cross over to a secondary paralleling wash. The trip log stats are round-trip via Shute Springs Creek.

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...
