The Hike Book

Just received an email from the publisher of Phoenix Magazine advertising a new book they are selling called The Hike Book. 228 of their favorite Arizona trails. Wondering if any members of Hike AZ know anything about it. Might be useful for pathologically solo hikers like myself (to know which trai...

Re: Maricopa Mountains Loop

I'm fighting a head cold, holding out until later this afternoon to see how I am doing, to commit or cancel. Likely a cancel though, unless I get a dramatic improvement.

Saguaro NP - Juniper Basin or Grass Shack? Not dog friendly, though.

Re: Home owner yelling at hiker on Hawes Trail Loop Mesa AZ

I have noticed this kind of thing happening at South Mountain. Some homeowners near Kyrene de las Lomas Elementary School are building big fenced lots into the open land next to their properties - one is a pickleball court for god's sake. I assume the land is technically theirs, I don't really know....

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Looks like decent potential for some rain on Friday in SE AZ at least. 20% chance of t-storms Rincons/Mt. Graham. 40% for Chiracahuas. Per NOAA. I am seeing 10%'s up on the rim.

Re: Smart Outdoor Watch-What do you wear?

I am using the Gear S3 Frontier also. It is certainly not a full on hardcore GPS watch. I used to own a fenix 3, which if I were wanting a hardcore outdoor watch would do back to that line. I use my phone for GPS so really don't need that functionality on a watch. Otherwise, the Gear S3 has reasonab...

Re: delorme inreach

I got the inReach Mini yesterday, took it out today for a 17 mile test run. Works really well, pretty nice little device. It is reasonably small, just hangs essentially unnoticed on my pack. I am mainly using the phone app for the messaging, which works very well. I like the confirmation that a mess...

Re: Tonto Pass required for Cave Creek TH ??

Which in some weird way makes sense. If the NPS is collecting the fees for the ATB, I bet they're not sending any of it to Nat Forests, State Parks, etc. Pardon my naivete... but I think the money from the sale of ATB passes is spread among several agencies. The ATB my wife bought me came directly ...

Re: Trivia (added to Home Page)


There is a water fountain at the Pima Canyon parking lot. It is only seasonal though, I believe. It can be found just beyond the 20 piles of dog feces that sit 3 feet from a garbage can.

Re: How you clean the Canon Mark 2 sensor and the 24-105

Just be sure to use unscented soap. Otherwise you get the smell if dish soap every time you bring the camera up to your face.

Re: 360 cameras

Is this a new technology? Do you need a special camera for it? Doesn't the camera just use software to piece the photo together? Software can be run on any device. Well, kinda but the 360 cameras only use 2 very-wide-angle lenses. Solves the problem of having to circle around and clip a bunch of st...

Re: Arizona Litter Hotline: 1-877-3-Litter

I see what you did there. Using quotes around the word free. Well played!

Just a thought but someone with time on his/her hands could probably bankrupt this project in a week by walking around a mall parking lot reporting every plate they see. If he/she we're so inclined.

Re: South Mountain parking on street - Warpaint Trailhead

Video working for me. Sadly I have watched this coming for some time at Warpaint. You can see the moneyed people trying to box the public out. They want their own private 17,000 acre park. It will get worse. I wouldn't call this person "interesting". I'd call him what he is but it would likely get m...
