Re: 2021 Fire Season

CNF posted an update. It's up to 9 acres. :sweat:

Re: Coconino NF proposes trailhead transit expansion

Similar to how the FS manages fire, this policy seems focused on protecting the private property and quality of life of those who reside adjacent to the forest.

Re: "Turkey" Benchmark by Rincon Peak

Hi @BubbaJuice :welcome: A quick search here doesn't show any previous mention of Turkey BM or Turkey Benchmark, and there are no routes posted in that area. See https://hikearizona.com/map.php?QX=10136 As you note, it doesn't look terribly difficult to get to (hahaha, famous last words!) but it is ...

Re: What's Your Favorite Color

This is a literary "cartoon". So I'll put it here. Friends, family, followers—gather whatever posts you possess of your pets or fancy latte art, and lay them at the altar of my nascent wilderness infatuation. I demand a sacrifice! There is a new force dominating your social media, clad in breathable...

Re: Mindless chit chat

This totally not-monsoon-related weather system that will somehow be credited to monsoon rainfall totals anyway has brought to our state the first touch of winter. The San Francisco Peaks have just a touch of snow across the highest peaks this morning, and a larger swath of the White Mountains have ...

Re: Hiking vehicles

The money quote from the sheriff Black Bear Pass is an extremely dangerous road & should only be driven by experienced off-road drivers in appropriate vehicles. Legally, a 16yr-old who got his DL hours prior, may try to drive the pass in grandma's 80’s sedan. That doesn’t mean it’s safe." ... a conc...

Re: Hiking vehicles

@cactuscat The Sheriff's post identified the vehicle as a "Bronco" and there was an aggressive pushback from online truck folks about how it was a "Bronco Sport", which is barely more than a sedan (or something like that). Blah blah blah. Interesting to see that Yahoo made it clear in the headline....

Re: SR 88 - Apache Trail

@xsproutx
The Tonto NF replied to my query this way:
The road is open to restricted access only via foot, motorcycle or horse. This is narrowed down just west of the Apache Marina entrance on Hwy 88.
