Re: Possible AZT thru-hike in Spring 2019

People tend to prefer trails, regardless of their country of citizenship. Cattle on the other hand... dumber than a box of rocks, and the primary creators of networks of non-trails leading to all the wrong places! But if you pay attention, it usually doesn't take more than a minute or two for you to...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

I think October might've ruined winter. Will it ever rain again? Perhaps we can hope for a strong monsoon!

@hikeaz All those cool features can’t possibly overcome the single indisputable disqualifier. It’s still a Chevy. 🤦🏼‍♂️

@Peter_Medal I forget which is which. Is Nancy the curious mountain lion and Vicky the problem black bear, or the other way around?

My posts in this thread are both. But mostly the latter. It will take me a few more years for the former to prevail. But I'm committed to that goal, so stay tuned.

Re: Aravaipa in late December

The triplogs in December tend to be in the first week or two because historically that's when the fall colors are best. Over the holidays, it will be a little bit bare and dull in the canyon as far as the flora goes. My advice is to plan on having cold feet. Make sure you have dry socks and camp sho...

Re: Does this point have a name?

It doesn't appear to be named on any of the maps, but I'd guess that local hikers or climbers have an unnoficial name for it.

Re: Ventana Canyon to Mt. Lemmon overnight

Looks like route #1 is what is described above. Via Sabino is the same distance (last I checked the tram isn't running) but a lot easier and nicer trail. Other options include Esperero and up from the State Park. Here's a map with the routes if that helps. https://hikearizona.com/map.php?MY=40776&M=1

Re: Uranium Mining at Grand Canyon

I found an article last week that I found to be quite educational regarding the history of land preservation in Arizona as it relates to mining near Grand Canyon. I've always found it a little bit against conventional wisdom that the vast majority of Wilderness Areas in Arizona were created during t...
