Re: Mindless chit chat

@chumley So are you telling me the big headline reading possible rain in the future for Phoenix this morning, may have just been a little good old fashioned click bait? apparently, as I'm going to go check the ten day forecast :lol: that was the day I was going to make a try at Camelback via Echo.....

Re: Hike Events in Strange Times

yes, let's do it :y: . We'll be outdoors and we can social distance a bit and/or wear masks for those who are more comfortable with that. Besides, we have to celebrate my retirement too. I was thinking we could hike to the hill above Telegraph Canyon off of FR 4 https://hikearizona.com/photo.php?ZIP...

Re: Mindless chit chat

When I walked out I caught myself saying "it's almost freezing" and quickly realized the idiocy of that remark, even if it was under my alarmed breath :lol: .

Re: Mindless chit chat

@chumley Omg. I did a ShowLow run last night. It was my first time seeing the aftermath of the fire. The mountains above Slate creek look lik a hairless cat! That’s gonna be a mess when it rains. Also the amount of Saguaros we are gonna lose between the Ballantine Trail and Bush Highway is going to...

Re: Bush Fire

I swear I can now see the smoke from my house up on the 101 and Cave Creek. I saw the plumes this morning and then after my gym class the plumes had flattened and spread out across the sky along the McDowells. But now as I look out my window to the NE at home, I see what appears to be smoke as it's ...

@LosDosSloFolks
Ya, they just posted on Facebook too. Let's hope they can nip this one in the bud quickly. From here it doesn't look too breezy so hopefully that will help a little.

Re: Cave Creek Takes First Step To Expand Spur Cross

I just wish they could reach some sort of amenable agreement/price with the current landowners. What a great legacy those landowners could leave to all of us. Let's hope.

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

and very sadly, so far it looks like only walk-ins for Glacier Park if at all, which doesn't make a bunch of sense either. We think it's partly a staffing issue (can't put as many folks in the dorms) to do trail work as well as all the other duties. I had just figured out how my hiking partner could...

Re: Harmony Hollow Land Parcel in Cave Creek

Thx for sharing. Interesting about the 1/2 cent sales tax diversion after it paid for Spur Cross. Technically it should have ended once the purchase was complete thus it seems reasonable to divert it long enough to pay for Harmony Hollow. And I'm all for making money but it seems the owners of Harmo...
