Re: Skunk Bush?

In response to Sredfield's reply: High grade marijuana, perhaps? There have been several HUGE pot growing operations busted in the Coconino, Prescott and Tonto national forests in the past couple years. Could be something else of course, but high grade pot has a distinct skunk smell.

Rob, that was my whole point..the Mountain lions are plentiful, but so rarely seen that they pose NO threat to hikers. Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh my :o A mountain lion sighting always inspire a knee jerk reaction. There are much more dangerous predators in AZ, Humans.

You might as well shake your rattle dance around the fire and summon a witch doctor before using one of those snake bite kits. cutting and sucking out the poison is IMPOSSIBLE. It's 2006, I'm amazed they still sell this things.

I became a true believer in the umbrella idea. I saw one for 2 dollars at a garage sale and gave it a try. The only downside was an occasional gust of wind. Sure makes a blistering hot hike much more tolerable. : king :

I wouldnt lose any sleep over west clear creek being "devastated" by flooding. It was created by millions and millions of years of floods. Beaches change after every flood.

The "best" hike is purely in the opinion of the hiker. Seems like every hike has its defining moments that make it either a winner or a loser. Seeing a huge bull elk snorting and rutting,encountering a bevy of skinny dipping co-eds or finding an arrowhead can make a hike seem like the best ever, whe...

This is AZ, where half of the residents, Sun City et al, wear plaid, polyester, high water pants that are pulled up past their belly button and nobody laughs at them.
