@herdbull
TNF doesn't seem to have any enforcement of the special permit area behind the gates. Perhaps more "complaints" of such violations to the Mesa Ranger District will get some attention to the issue.

Re: Yosemite fed bears from 1923-1971

Hart warns it’s important to never feed wildlife.
Except birds. Birds are not actually wild and it's perfectly acceptable to install feeders for them because they're pretty.
Also, birds aren't real.

Re: Mindless chit chat

There's a limited number of tickets available due to Covid protocols and they've been selling out weekends even before there was any natural snow on the mountain and only a few trails open. I wouldn't read too far into it.

The ASU Library's Map and Geospatial Hub just published an online presentation with a wealth of interesting data from historical surveys of Grand Canyon. If you like maps, history, or Grand Canyon, (or all three!!!) you'll probably enjoy this presentation. Here's a news story introducing/describing ...

Re: GPS Watch or Lightweight Handheld Recommendations

Modern smart phones receive signals from several global constellations including GPS (US operated), GLONASS (old Soviet, now Russian), and Galileo (European). But if you are working on a commercial engineering project you may require more accuracy than a smartphone or handheld device is capable of.

Re: GPS Watch or Lightweight Handheld Recommendations

Like @lindaann said, if you already carry a smartphone, there are plenty of options for maps and navigation that don't weigh any extra. For multi-day backpacking trips, I bring a small powerbank to recharge my phone. It's lighter than handheld GPS device (not as light as a watch ... though I doubt b...

Re: Advice on 2-night backpacking trip in the Superstitions?

Are there any reliable maps that show the extent of last year's fires? The perimeter maps are usually fairly easy to find.

@big_load
The peaks had up to 8", but mostly 4-6" along the trails there. Definitely slows you down a bit more than bare ground, but nothing that should stop anybody with a good pair of hiking boots.

Re: Mindless chit chat

With the "big one" still on its way today and tonight, optimism continues to be high, but so far totals of both rain and snow have been disappointing based on earlier forecasts. They've met my happiness criteria of 1"+ in most higher elevation locations, so whatever happens today and tomorrow is jus...

Is the House not part of Congress? Does anybody questioning any of this actually know anything about our government and how it operates?
