Re: 44? Hikers Rescued from Lost Dutchman State Park Overnight

@AZLumberjack I wouldn't expect them to stop a large group. My point is that, once it's brought all the attention from being in rescue mode, it would seem reasonable that it might at least be brought up that by the way, your group is also beyond the legal size limit in the wilderness area you delib...

Re: 44? Hikers Rescued from Lost Dutchman State Park Overnight

So at some point these people must have left LDSP and crossed the boundary into the wilderness. Shouldn't the 15 person limit come into play somewhere? Looks the priority of that rule is very low.

I was at the Water Reuse Symposium there last summer and Snowbowl being able to be operated every year for a set amount of days indepedent of the weather is probably THE biggest driving factor to alot o...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

Looking today from Fountain Hills looks like the biggest smoke plume I've seen since it started. The latest date on the progression of that map seems to show in areas that I recall as having more forested area (?), although not completely sure.

Re: RS Route + Triplog

I've always found it very convenient to post the route first from RS, and then choose that option on my laptop from recent routes and directly link my pics and triplog. I suppose a draft triplog will achieve the same result, although an incomplete triplog will exist until I get to it, which sometime...

Re: Snake Gaiters -worth it?

I had a close encounter with a rattler in 2003, then I bought a pair of snake gaiters. They were heavy, chafed the skin, and made my legs sweat under my knees, which would roll into my socks. My feet were always soaked afterwards. I bought a lighter pair after a while, still had the same issues to s...

Geronimo Trail SoMo north (lower) end parking

Does anyone have info or experience parking at the lower end of the SoMo Geronimo Trail? I want to plan a hike from that point out to Goat Hill and back, so I was hoping to avoid having to park at the Mormon TH. GoogleMaps satellite and street views show a very small, unofficial looking lot. Any dan...

Re: Arcadia trail/ Heliograph/ Pinalenos?

and on the lower end of the Arcadia about a quarter mile in, watch out for where the trail dangerously disappears where it should cross the creek.

Re: Arcadia trail/ Heliograph/ Pinalenos?

I was there April 15. The trail to Heliograph Peak looks in rough shape. It's doable, but kind of overgrown. Arcadia is better, but footing is kind of loose from the recent fire. Some treefall on the upper end past the junction with Heliograph Peak.

Re: Supai Horse Abuse to be Prosecuted

I was just talking to someone this morning at work who was there this weekend and she said that it's obvious all the horses are still starving and overworked. She said one was literally eating dirt.

Re: Whoa, whoa is our plight!

Greater Phoenix is good at recycling waste water, but most of it is used for cooling the Palo Verde nuclear power plant I'm not sure if this true or not, but I tend to doubt this statement as well, knowing how much reclaimed water is used for golf courses and other irrigation. Water is a big concer...

Re: What's your least favorite?

Most of the trails around the Phoenix preserve, for a few reasons. First, the nearly constant sound of traffic. Second, seems like the bikers who ride there are more aggressive than other parks. Third, the geology seems kind of ugly, just very grey rock, little vegetation or soil. And some of the "t...
