After being back around the north side of Elden and all over the Dry Lake Hills yesterday, it would be nice if the Coco were to undertake a plan like this Kaibab Plan, for our area. Pretty much every place on the Coco near Flagstaff, that isn't flat ponderosa pine which has been logged over many times, has been burned except for this area. A lot of the Dry Lake Hills is in really bad shape, and the Brookbank reminds me of the Waterline road before the Schultz. So far, with all of the fires over the last 33 years: The Radio in 1977, the Hochderffer in 1996, the Leroux in 2000, and the Schultz last year, and also the Pumpkin on Kendrick, Flagstaff itself has been spared the the loss of water shed stability and damage to it's view shed. Doney Park has faired far worse than Flag, ironically. It would be nice if the Dry Lake hills could be managed before a fire turns that area into a slide prone, and recreationally useless, and also incredibly ugly area.
Spring winds are still annoying, but if they aren't filled with dirt or cold, they aren't that bad.
