Re: Whazzit???

Unrelated, it's almost lunch time, and I think the menu calls for a roast beef sandwich.

Re: Sabino Canyon Recreation Area Shuttle

There will be only 3 vehicles for the first few days of shuttle service on the Upper Sabino Canyon route, due to a windshield being replaced on the fourth vehicle. How many days does it take to replace a windshield? They should bring it to the local Circle K, and some pestering guy who won't leave ...

Re: Superstition Wilderness Pic (Where?)

I just can't imagine it being portrayed and for sale as being a scene in the "Superstition Wilderness" when it now appears to not be. It may have been labeled differently in the museum, but on the web it has the title "Superstition Grand Canyon". This somewhat ambiguous title may lead one to believ...

Re: Western Drought

I'm no scientist, but I feel like the "drought monitor" doesn't work on a very long time scale. I've always thought that drought is more climate than weather (e.g. long term, not short term). Yet somehow we can go from areas of D3 Extreme Drought, and skip right down through D2 Severe, D1 Moderate, ...

Re: Missing Snowshoes on Mt Ord

@hiking_arizona That sucks. The pass area was a complete shitshow of the worst of humanity when I drove by late yesterday afternoon. Except that few would put in the half mile of effort, it wouldn’t otherwise surprise me if somebody decided to claim them as their own. Hopefully I’m wrong. Good luck.

Re: China Wall- Rackensack

The interwebs reports Cave Creek Wash at Spur Cross Trailhead is running at 44cfs (another gauge nearby shows 53cfs). This has been dropping steadily since 1am when it was at 95cfs. Seven Springs Wash at the Humbolt Mtn turn is back to zero. Cave Creek at the "Ashdale Ranger station" is showing a pa...

Re: Maricopa Mountains Loop

I was thinking of camping out there this weekend. That's a nice little campground next to the trailhead. Good to be alert though. A lot of hungry coyotes and rabid foxes last time I was there.
