Re: November Mazatzal Wilderness

Mazzies are pretty nice, and I agree with the recommendations to come prepared with a GPS and tracks if you intend to go more than about 6 miles from Sheep Bridge. The trails have not been maintained well and a fire went the higher elevations some 20ish years ago some they are in poor condition or n...

Re: Utah Flats route in winter?

I think you will be very cold, but once you get below the rim a few thousand feet, I think you'd be OK until the final descent into upper Phantom. Since it doesn't get much sun likely snow hanging around in upper Phantom. The place is a cold sink too. Bring an extra warm sleeping bag. Upper Phantom ...

Despite an odd theory posted elsewhere, the monsoon is apparently unaffected by HAZ forum rants.

I for one, am sick of this weather, or lack thereof.
So you're suggesting that ranting on internet forums is a futile waste of time? Blasphemy!

Re: Mazatzal Wilderness Info Sought

If it isn't clear from the posts, much of the Matzatzals also burned in a fire about 20 years ago, and many of the trails in the middle of the wilderness are gone. I'd recommend sticking to the divide trail or the trains that start at Barnhardt trailhead.

Re: Marble Canyon closed to canyoneering

Sort of, but they still allow access to 2 of those canyons, so it isn't an outright closure. So you basically ask for a permit, and in select cases, you get denied.

Re: Marble Canyon closed to canyoneering

Uh, canyoneering was not closed at all, and if you read the article, it even says canyoneering is allowed if accessed from the other side of the river. More accurate would be "Navajo tribe increases crackdown on illegal use of their land", since you have always needed a permit to camp or hike on the...

Re: Non-cotton active sports shirts

When you buy synthetic shirts, I recommend you get 100% synthetic, and not a 80-90% blend (most are a blend). It takes awhile of looking through labels, but they are out there. Full synthetic absorb a lot less and rinse pretty clean using just water. with regular detergent the remaining sweat washes...

Re: Rosemont Mine EIS

"In his 37-page decision, Soto hammered almost exclusively at the Forest Service’s approval of Hudbay’s plan to dump mine waste rock and tailings from its 955-acre pit onto 2,447 acres of nearby public land on the Santa Ritas’ eastern slopes." So no environmental concerns, just a land claim concern....

Re: Monsoon On The Way!!

@chumley
The worst damage appeared to me to be along McKellips road near Lindsay. No other significant damage was noted elsewhere. I suspect a powerful downdraft snapped about 12-50 trees in a one block area.

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

Just as a warning: The Woodbury fire is still smoldering and there is significant smoke settled in the Roosevelt Lake basin, so anyone sensitive should probably stay at least 20 miles away from the lake. Apache trail remains closed between Tortilla Flat and the dam, and I don't expect that to change...

Re: Museum Fire

I imagine this one will mostly be contained by the burn scar from the schultz fire? Still, rather uncomfortably close to some of the populated subdivisions in that area of Flagstaff.

The roads in that area are very unfriendly to cars, and it is recommended to hike the road in any vehicle which is not suitable for hard off-road driving.

Re: Hammock use

@mgmbaker
I would say to do the stretch from flagstaff south to Pine, and then celebrate with a beer at the nearby pub "THAT brewery". South of there I think you will find stretches without trees.

If you want to just tool around a lake, those cheap pool toys will work just fine. If you want to run rapids and smash into rocks, you need the expensive ones.
