Re: Mindless weather chit chat

@OdinWiski I haven't been up there this year so I can't comment on current conditions, but 151 usually gets reasonable traffic through the winter. With that said, the snow is deep in there and I wouldn't attempt it without at least carrying snowshoes with me. I don't think it gets packed down well ...

@Jim_H
I've been keeping an eye on it. I'm glad you mentioned the stability factor. My initial thoughts about current snowpack layers and the new snowfall certainly raises my caution level.

Re: Cathedral Rock (Catalina Mountains) BLACKED OUT!

@nonot There are about 15 different historical photos of the area on GE. The following have blacked out areas: current 2/2017 11/2015 3/2014 11/2009 While I don't rule out unspecified HAZers getting naked in the Catalinas during those years, I doubt Google is blacking out the area due to that kind ...

Re: Cathedral Rock (Catalina Mountains) BLACKED OUT!

@jajohnson11 per the all-knowing internet: It's just missing data. Those 3d maps are put together using software that compiles photographs from several different orientations as well as topographical data. They work really well for cities and towns and rolling hills and stuff like that, and not as ...

Re: Secret canyon TH

@nonot It used to be “easily” done long before the concrete was added. There are others hazzers who drove stock 2wd trucks up it successfully. Plus the infamous Stiller video which is always worth watching again...! :D

Re: Secret canyon TH

@ddgrunning We did it this spring, and this is what I wrote about it: The road condition has deteriorated significantly since last I drove it, and I'm guessing it is probably very much on purpose. It was nice to crawl it in 4-low, and we stopped to help a kid get his jeep back on the road after lea...

Re: Help build new Hawes Trail 12/22/18 8am-noon

all volunteer work should have ceased I'm sure this is open to interpretation ... and there's nobody who will answer the phone to tell you if you're right or wrong, but my impression of this guideline is for people who volunteer in an official capacity for the FS. An example would be snakemarks or ...

@hikeaz I can't find a single third-party, real-world review of that online. There are a few youtube videos and a bunch of "articles" in outdoorsy type websites that are nothing more than a rehashed (or word-for-word reprint) press-release published by the company itself.

I think that error can only happen when you try to embed an image. You can attach an image (as you did above) by selecting the Attachments tab below, and clicking the Add files button.
