Re: Bighorn Fire

@SpiderLegs I would have been perfectly willing to ignore those, too. My shuttle hiking partner is understandably less enthusiastic about doing so, since they also would have come from 6 hours away. I won't be changing anything for front range hikes, however. Neither is anyone else, for that matter...

So, this most recent stupidity is an improvement?!? Oh, my god. No wonder myself and several others just stopped paying attention.

Re: Bighorn Fire

@andrewp I was scanning old posts thinking I might find a link to the order which did expire November 1. I didn't imagine that, which is good, but they had extended that? I don't supposed that order exists anywhere. Then again, maybe who cares, as plenty of people have been hiking these trails, and...

There. Squeek! Squeek! Make some noise, and irritate these unaccountable tyrants.

Feel free to share this on Facebook, in facebook groups, and in meetup groups, anywhere people might have interest in logical, well managed forests and recreational access to them.

Re: Bighorn Fire

That has got to be one of the dumbest and illogical things I've seen. An non-elected bureaucrat is tyrannically passing a decree which is contradictory in nature and exempts a politically powerful organization from the decree. Oh, and the BS justification is, "The purpose of this Order is to protect...

Re: Mindless chit chat

No, it doesn't. Last I saw, Flagstaff was actually very slightly above normal for precipitation as measure from January 1, but not the water year, and going back to last April it would undoubtedly be well below normal thanks to the absence of summer rains. However, Flagstaff, which as we ALL know is...

Re: Quartzite Spring-Mt Lemmon

@SpiderLegs
According to newspaper articles, though from 2012 so higher levels of truth, the village gets it's water from two sources without wells, or pumping. This one seems like it very well may be the "Upper Sabino Canyon source", given the flow.

Re: Quartzite Spring-Mt Lemmon

@chumley It sounds like at least one member has. I am wondering if this particular spring is the source of water for the town of Summer Haven? They might be able to give information about its quality. That high up on Mount Lemmon, and without cattle grazing, the only source of contamination that I ...

Quartzite Spring-Mt Lemmon

I see numerous reports for Quartzite Spring on Mt Lemmon, the one just down trail from the Lemmon Rock Lookout on the side of the Mount Lemmon Trail where a large amount of water (especially for the altitude ) is gushing from a metal pipe just below a metal spring house. I know nothing of the water ...

Re: Mindless chit chat

It's windy enough this Spring that I'm starting to feel like I'm back up in Flagstaff! What gives? I don't recall it being this windy in Phoenix for the last 5 years, or the last time I was here in Tucson in 2015. I certainly hope this isn't going to be routine as we move into April and May. Despite...

Re: 2015 Wildflowers

I thought we had a more recent flower thread than this? Either way, I saw some small lupines and poppies along Orange Grove Rd down here, about 2 weeks ago, and then I think I saw those African Daisy flowers near the Phoenix Preserve 3 weeks ago. Other than that, I'm not really even seeing green exo...

Re: Mindless chit chat

A fair amount of rain overnight in Pima County. I see that Phoenix had a decent March total over the last 2 days, also. Not like last year, but 1/3 of an inch to 7/10ths, being common down here, and similar over parts of the Valley. Snowbowl reports a 28 inch storm total, which is usually pretty goo...
