Re: Cabin Loop Trail

@outdoor_lover Coconino is not particularly dry currently. High elevation pine forests are still living off a pretty good winter. CNF typically manages the Red Rock District differently than the higher elevation districts. While RR entered restrictions earlier than the rest of the forest this year,...

Re: COVID Ruined our Plans - Need helping finding an out-of-state "Cabin Loop"

@big_load Nothing about Covid is simple. It's a serious virus and definitely constitutes a health emergency. Unfortunately, it is rare for a media organization to disseminate data in a way that paints a picture of all the relevant factors (or even more than just one!). While Arizona has now surpass...

@Alston_Neal
Something like that. Strong inversion layer in the cold spots, and not sure of the direction, but winds in Doney Park kept the warm air at the surface.

Bellemont is often very cold on dry nights. Doney is often breezy on the leeward side of the peaks.

Re: Flagstaff - SR180 & Rt. 66 change

While we're rebuilding the Flagstaff road system, can I request a new high-speed interchange directly from I-40 to the 89 east of town? Preferably with an underground tunnel that bypassess the entire Flagstaff Mall area and reemerges somewhere north of Doney Park.

Re: Flagstaff - SR180 & Rt. 66 change

Southbound 180 traffic backed up at the 66 light causes congestion in the adjacent neighborhood and downtown streets.
Eastbound/Northbound traffic at that same intersection only causes congestion on the already messy main thoroughfare, which they probably care much less about.

Is this sarcasm? Or did it transition to another team before the "second phase" of the Bighorn Fire?

Re: AZ National Forest Closures

@Sredfield I’ve heard this from several different sources for more than two weeks now. (Notably not from the forest itself).

If it’s what they determine to be the best course of action, they should have just done it two weeks ago. IMO

Re: AZ National Forest Closures

Tonto has re-closed recreation areas due to the increase in covid positive numbers in Arizona. The link has a list of specific sites affected, but it is primarily campgrounds and some lakeside recreation areas near Roosevelt.
