Re: Short Hike with kids

I'm sure you know this, but cabin loop is similar terrain with more kid-friendly, first-time hiker terrain. And out-and-back on Houston Brothers would be perfect. Pinchot Springs is a quick payoff that's exciting for kids. Take plenty of time to mess around in there, then if they're willing you can ...

Re: Point Trail, West Clear Creek

@LauraZirino
I would only start at Bullpen if you're not comfortable with the terrain described for Point Trail. Bullpen actually has a trail that follows the creek for a few miles, just a few easy crossings required. Otherwise, Point is much prettier.

Re: Point Trail, West Clear Creek

@LauraZirino Good to see you on HAZ! Nonot's reply is spot-on in my opinion. You'll be wading up to waist deep for much of it. I've done Point Trail numerous times, and as far as I can remember, I've never felt inclined to drybag my gear (although I've never gone too far in either direction). Go do...

Re: Fatality for Arizona Hiker on Mt. Hood

Very sad. I just don’t understand leaving a injured person behind! I don't think anyone left an injured person behind. Sounds like he was tired and they decided to complete the last ~1 mile at different paces. I've done it several times when hiking with another person, sometimes while leading and so...

Re: What's your least favorite?

Havasupai. Sit on the phone for days, spend 100 bucks on permits, drive 5 hours, and hike 10 miles to set camp up at a crowded campground and hang out by a crowded waterfall.

Re: God help us.....

I'm also confused. They're opening a Starbucks in a town near the Grand Canyon. I don't see how that's even news, much less shocking or depressing news. Frankly, I'm shocked there isn't one there yet.

Black Canyon Trail between Table Mesa Rd and Hwy 69. The South end is real flat except for dipping in and out of the Agua Fria.

Re: Route Scout - GPS Topo Mapper & Recorder

Using 3.1.14 on my LG V20. When recording a track, I open route scout to check my track and progress, then lock my phone and put it back in my pocket. Right away I'll hear a "mile split statistic" notification., Unlock phone and check Route Scout again, the track jumped to a random point 5-10 miles ...

Re: 400 GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card

Has anybody here had an SD Card failure? Yep. Out at the EF Black River setting up for an evening shot. Had to drive back to Show Low through a stormy, rainbow-y sunset to buy a new one from Walmart. Of course it was dark by the time I was back to the forest. Still, I'd rather have the card fail be...

Re: Lightweight backpacking tripod solution

Nice and innovative! Looks like it would work well for solid, steady surfaces. Appears it could be tricky in creeks. Then again, since I got my sweet, solid RRS setup (which weighs as much as 3 of my 2-person tents :lol: ), I no longer have an outlet for violent rage, so maybe I could benefit from o...
