Trail Blazes

Here in Arizona, I've primarily seen only the vertical "short-long" blaze. Most seem to be at least a couple of decades old, many much older. Back east, apparently there is a more complicated pattern of blazes which I have not seen or used in practice. Many people walk right past blazes without even...

@Jim_H Please don’t encourage me to dig up examples of those intelligent discussions you participated in that you selectively miss. It won’t end well.

Re: Critical Theory, Critical Race Theory?

Critical Race Theory, Critical Theory in general, and politics in general related to these thing: do people have interest and capacity to discuss these subjects in a honest fashion? Yes.

Re: Animal Battles

Very cool trail cam capture. It's pretty cool how the rattlesnake can't land a bite on the little kitty. After watching this, @gummo 's photos are no longer interesting to me. : wink : :sweat:

Re: Horse Fire

@LosDosSloFolks The wind is out of the northwest this morning, which is why the fire is also threatening Towers Mtn and CK currently (and pushing ash over casa de chez slofolks). It is supposed to shift to a southwest wind this afternoon which will clear your skies, and "hopefully" help firefighter...

Re: FR 300

@ALMAL Road resurfacing continues and daily closures/delays are ongoing. I would not want to ride a bike on any part of the new aggregate road surface that isn't in the packed double-track made by heavier vehicles. Unless maybe if you have one of those pfancy pfat tire bikes. The only stretch that ...

@LosDosSloFolks
This version forgot to mention that he approached the cubs to capture good photographs. I believe by definition that makes the mother "defensive" rather than "aggressive" -- a term that should be reserved for the photographer.

Re: Mindless chit chat

@RedRoxx44 Depends on location. By statewide average it was #1 driest... by a long shot. Not only did the entire state of Arizona just come off its driest Monsoon, but it wasn't even close! Nearly half the amount of the previous record low amount, and less than 1/3 of the average. That's astounding...

Re: 2020 Fire, Campfire & Stove Restrictions

Apache-Sitgreaves NF implementing Stage I fire restrictions beginning October 9 (set to expire 12/31).

I believe this leaves Coronado as the only NF in Arizona that is not under fire restrictions.
