Re: US 89 to Page is closed....

I flew into Page once years ago. It wasn't in a Cessna but not much bigger.

Re: AZT in a Day!

For anyone hiking mid-AZ, or coming through Pine after their hike, there is an informal after-party at THAT Brewery. Free dessert if you convince the wait-staff that you participated. The T-shirt would likely be pretty convincing.

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

@Hansenaz
You make a good point. The behavior described is way out of the normal range and does sound like some sort of mental disorder.

Re: Camping Spots on #11 - Santa Catalina Mountains?

Cathedral Rock junction is about half-way, very nice camping and a good chance of water a little upstream from the junction.

Re: Blood Donation?

Our family doctor, years ago (late 50"s/early 60's) told me that giving a pint doesn't do much, but that when he was in med school they would give two pints, and assured me that had quite an effect.

Looking for burned-over juniper

We need 8-10 good sized, dry, juniper posts for trail signs on the AZT Happy Jack Single Track project. Cut and trimmed posts should be 7+ feet long and 5-6 inches in diameter on the small end, so we are looking for some fairly mature ones. There has to be a patch that burned in 2014-2016 that is fa...

Re: Tinder Fire

A recent observation--if the fire had been 5 miles west the resulting runoff and erosion would likely have damaged Cragin Reservoir to the point that Payson's gazillion dollar waterline project would have been for nothing.

Hopi Music of the Grand Canyon

A friend asked me to help spread the word: Delete if inappropriate. Last October, I was fortunate enough to spend an evening inside the Desert View Watchtower on the South Rim of Grand Canyon recording music with Clark Tenakhongva, a renowned Hopi singer, and Gary Stroutsos, one of the world's great...

Re: Horse Camp Seep

If the riders are coming from the south, versus up Barnhardt, know that there is an eroded length of trail south of the Barnhardt junction that is not safe for horses.

Re: AzTrail Passages 16-17

@Preacher The box that used to be at the 16/17 border was moved to FR 4 because restocking the box that far out became impractical/impossible. Sorry, load up at the river and hump it north.

Re: AzTrail Passages 16-17

We hiked 17 and 16 Feb 17 -20. That's a bit long ago for any water report, but we did see water below a rock wall at 33.226916, 111.152897, just off the trail in a wash. Also some water in the wash trail-south of FR4 but I'm sure it was very temporary, from a recent light rain. There was water in th...
