Very speedy. When I got back with the camera, he decided he was done with the show. I was actually running to keep up with him. I was very surpised at just how speedy he was.

In response to ghoster's reply:

That was the first place I checked, I couldn't find him here. If he had rattles, then he'd fit in perfectly, but the fact his head is shaped wrong and no rattles, I can't figure him out.

What's that snake?

I come out my front door yesterday, completely unaware that I had hit this poor guy with the door. Coming back from the driveway, I almost did it again. When I noticed him, I was startled. Living in Sedona, we have found that shoes must stay on the porch. Anything white quickly becomes pink when Sed...

Red Rock Pass is not honored in the park, right? I try to hike daily (down from 425 lbs so far!) so I'm looking for new trails close to home. I am newer to Arizona. I'm used to hiking in cool shaded ponderosa and cedar forests where the sun rarely shines through except at noon. I am very photosensit...

Red Rock State Park

I just realized that none of the hiking trails in Red Rock State Park are listed on HAZ. Has anyone hiked these trails and can anyone offer any feedback.

In response to montezumawell's reply: I once lived in a place where male cats were always trying to out-do each other. They would spray all the time.

Re: Where is this place? Does anyone know?

I don't think that is it. It is a single bridge and that's a double (right? I did a search and from the photo it appears that way) and it does not look like you can jump from the rocks. Isn't Navajo over the Grand Canyon? I could be wrong about the distance from Winslow. It may have been an hour. I ...

Where is this place? Does anyone know?

When I was a teenager, while still living in the Sierras in California, I took many trips to Arizona. I remember one time staying in Winslow, but we drove (maybe a half hour or so) to a river. There was very high rock walls along the banks and a bridge across the water. you could jump off the wall a...

In response to Trans tech's reply: I agree. I plan on buying a gun soon. Recently I was alone and a long way from a popular trail when something very LARGE with a low guttural growl followed me for about five minutes. I could hear it move in the bush and there was no missing it's voice. It did not ...

Anything with Deet works great to repel bugs, but on hard hikes and hikes where it is warm, it doesn't take long to sweat it off your skin. In my case, it always ends up in my eyes. So at least my eyes are safe from bugs.

I'm one of those freakish day hikers who takes EVERYTHING withe me, including a frozen tv dinner and two packs of microwave popcorn.

I went searching for it today. I took the Courthouse Butte Loop, but I couldn't find it. As I rounded the butte back in the sun on the north side I decided to turn back, since I wasn't going to find it. Just a few minutes later, across the wash, I spotted what looked like a trail through the trees. ...

Re: Rabbit Ears Trail

I want to, but I have no idea where it is. I know where Big Park Loop connects to Courthouse Butte Loop in the big wash just before you head around the east side of the Butte, but I don't know where Rabbit Ears is. I can't seem to find any informaiton on this Trail, mostly because "Rabbit Ears Trail...

Would you happen to know where it connects with Courthouse Butte Loop? I'll hike it today (Monday) and get back to you with details.

Rabbit Ears Trail

The Rabbit Ears Trail is listed in HAZ. There is only one entry for this trail but not too many details. It appears to be somewhere between Courthouse Buttee Loop and Jack's Canyon Trail. I cannot find any information for this trail anywhere. Is, maybe, Rabbit Ears and Big Park one in the same? Does...
