I hiked to Deep Creek yesterday. As I started hiking I saw a police helicopter circling the Freedom Trail parking area, and I heard sirens from two police vehicles. Later when I finally made it to DCHS, having to go in a round a bout way because of all the police activity on the Freedom and Bowen trail, if I remember it correctly, a long time local who was at the springs, was earlier at the Freedom Trail when the guy came in his vehicle to that area, exiting it somewhere there, then he ran down to the springs, where another young couple who were soaking in the Womb saw the individual come running out of the bushes just west of the beach where your cross the creek. He then saw the horse and took it.

The horse belonged to a long time friend of mine Dan ( some of you regulars may very well have seen him there before ) who has been going to DCHS for about 40 years. The individual crossed the creek on the horse, went west on the PCT, then up the Bradford Ridge, and people at the springs recalled seeing him riding up the ridge, and said it looked like a movie. He then rode up further closer to HWY 173. During the hunt for the suspect a police chopper landed on the beach above the AZ pool and let out officers who hiked in the direction of where the man had gone. Dan as told to me by his brother this afternoon, after yelling at the man not to take his horse, put on his boots, red undershorts and his cowboy hat and went off up the mountain chasing after the man.

Dan did get close to the man on the horse later at one point and was going to try and get him at one spot, then officers who were in the area spotted Dan and thought he was the suspect and made Dan lay on the ground and they handcuffed him. Dan explained that the suspect was 30 years old, and Dan is early 50's, and Dan told them it was his horse he was trying to get back. You see in the video what occurred when they caught up with the suspect. Dan did get his horse back and rode all the way back to the springs, soaked a conversed with some visitors a bit, then he went off up the Bowen Ranch Rd and back the way he goes home. A long arduous day for Dan! Finally later in the day when things settled down I finally got in a nice relaxing soak in the Serenity Pool smiling smiley I guess from now on Dan will have to set the security alarm on his horse winking smiley
