Re: November Mazatzal Wilderness

@eaufdembrink Welcome to HAZ! Beautiful area. Those trails are not easy to access. Solitude is likely. Challenge finding some of the trails further away from the bridge is a solid bet. The water reports are reliable but few and far between in the Western Mazzies. https://hikearizona.com/decoder.php...

No peakbagger would consider Camelback dome necessary whereas the vicious majesty of Piestewa is clearly worthy of the peak status. Tempe Butte, the e is silent.

Is there a truly effective solution to treat a venomous bite in the field? The Extractor® pump is the ...

Re: RS Route + Triplog

Needed to be sure it works before rewriting stats. There was an issue with stats after editing. Cleared that up just two weeks ago. Seems fine now so maybe in the near future.
