Re: Superstition Mts - reliable water source

Hi all...just curious whether anyone's been in area of Charlebois Spring or LaBarge Spring recently and might know whether there's any water right now (since this winter's been so dry). Thanks!

Hiking in Mesa AZ

I am so glad it is getting cooler for hiking here in the valley ! I used to live over by SOuth Mountain which made it so easy to go hike after work. Here is my problem. I work from 7-3:30. I now live at Gilbert Rd and the 60. The sun is starting to set earlier and earlier but I want to be able to do...

I like the lighter foot wear when it is just me, but as a Scout Leader I can tend to be the pack mule for major outings and a heavy pack is typical. : rambo :

Time for new boots

I have worn the cleats off of my trusty hikers. I am looking at a couple of different ones for hot weather and rocky terrain.

I like the Converse® 8" Composite Toe Side Zipper Boot and the Bates® M-9 Desert Assault 9 in. Boots.

Any input would be great.

Looking for ruins or interesting buildings around Crown King

We're taking our Cub Scout Pack up to the Crown King in a couple of months and I was looking for any info on a fun hike with a cool destination like a old structure or maybe a ruin. ( Cub Scouts are as young as 1st Grade to 5th ) Any ideas would be appreciated 8)
