Re: Drive time on FR143 from Hwy 87 to Lone Pine trailhead?

@herdbull
About an hour from the turnoff.
Thought the west was 15 min more + more miles, the trade-off is less nerve-wracking, but I couldn't find where I jotted that down.

Re: 2021 Hazolutions

Started 2020 meeting a few new-to-me HAZ members out of appreciation on Pam's New Years' hike. I'm not a social butterfly but enjoyed the group hike. Posted several needed HAZ Guides. Up for grabs, in my range, were trails near Dewey-Humboldt. Along with some Skyline Park hikes, all netted more posi...

KwaiChang was up Piano Alley on a multiday trip in 2014. If conditioning is on par and route-finding savvy, Pyramid seems attempt worthy.

Re: Cheops Pyramid 5206

I would not recommend either as introductory off-trail navigation and even less if solo. Aside from physical conditioning both have serious mental struggles. Bataan Death March up North Kaibab isn't screaming Cheops. Sorry, just looking out for your safety. You have some great triplogs, just been a ...

Re: Best paper map for sale?

Tough getting out of Wide World of Maps without purchasing a necessity. However, looks like your nearest Tempe store does not carry topos.

I've never used greentrails, perhaps better?

Re: Cheops Pyramid 5206

Glad you weren't contemplating the pre-edit :lol: Utah Flats is middle & below view in the edit or blends in. It's not really a concern. The eastern slope of Cheops in view is the common approach. Most hike low near the edge. It gets old and potentially one bad step from a bad day/life in a couple o...

Re: Cheops Pyramid 5206

Utah Flats is lower-right but it is mostly out of view in that photo.

Personally, I'd avoid the bridge.
Bridge view from plateau => [ photo ]

We hiked high up on the west and low on the east [ gps route ]

Re: Have you lost or almost lost your GPS?

Bruce & I ran the exact same model Garmin Oregon 450t, same settings and had variances up to 10%. My Garmin Fenix never matched my Garmin Oregon. In all fairness, I did not try putting my Oregon on my wrist nor my Fenix in my pocket. There are a plethora of variables involved. Phones used as cameras...
