Re: Mindless weather chit chat

I predict a late monsoon. The Phoenix National Weather Service discussion this morning is talking about a weak subtropical jet, and we have another late-season trough that will affect the area this coming weekend. The discussion also talks about late precipitation in other late Monsoon years. The mo...

Wow. I'm so glad there's still a thread about weather! :doh: Excuse me, Todd! This is a thread about climate! There is a difference. The weather thread is dead, and completely different.

Re: Western Drought

I heard an interview the other day where it was stated the one of the largest water users (there are many) in California is alfalfa and hay production. Not for domestic use, but to ship to China and the middle east, largely for dairy production. California in a good or normal year can not meet it's ...

I expect to be at the Cross Cut TH at 8. There are 6 of us, do we have enough shuttle space?

Re: Superstition Ridgeline week of 1/21

Yeah, I'm not one to pay to park at the Park just to leave cars there. I've been sick since the 12th or so, and work this weekend, and I wont' really be able to commit until Sunday or Monday, in case that matters. That said, I would enjoy this as I've never done it.

@chumley
You know I leave my house for work before 7, right?

Is Lost Dutchman SP going to be used, and not the Cross Cut? Depending on flexibility, I can leave my car at the Carnival Springs.

Re: Superstition Ridgeline week of 1/21

I'll throw my hat in to scare some people off. Carney Springs is the usual spot to start 5057, correct? I'm interested, as it is a little closer than a Catalina hike, and different for me, and I've been yearning for a longer hike. Why would 9 am be a late start? Seems like the entire hike shouldn't ...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Permits can be obtained from the ski lodge on weekends during the shutdown. Otherwise, I would just do what I want, as if you can't get them, and there is no enforcement, then they can't really exclude you. That is me, though.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Just an FYI, when I say stable, I mean the pack should be stable for snowshoeing, not necessarily avalanche risk. I know almost nothing about avalanche risk, but the route I used/ wrote was always really safe, and I don't know of slides in the Dutchman. Allison Clay and Philomena are their own thing...

Humphrey and the Snow

@chumley @john9L @toddak @BobP Just because I would like to encourage someone to snowshoe the Peaks this coming weekend, and the Dutchman Route, as well as the Philomena Springs descent area (if stable) might be viable, I'm posting that the current storm cycle is warm and wet enough that it should ...

Now, I realize this thread died after less than a full page, and so maybe it will be unread in the much less active than 8 years ago forum, but has anyone here ever resolved to, and then stopped logging their hikes, either all or in part?

Re: Gila Wilderness Backpacking in Spring

I still ask that if you or anyone else pass through McKenna Park, Woodland Park, or some of the other ponderosa pine parks which have had several low intensity fires in the last 20 years, that you take some photos and post them. Tag me, too, if you can, since I may miss some sets. Spring isn't reall...

Re: Good places for beginner snowshoeing around Flagstaff

Permit is required for the back country for any entry of the Peaks wilderness off Snowbowl RD, and I have seen FS Law Enforcement on the lower road, should the Federal Shutdown be over, by then.

Re: Good places for beginner snowshoeing around Flagstaff

Do you have a goal in mind, or are you just looking to snowshoe? I was able to pick it up just by doing it on the Peaks going up Agassiz in December of 2007, having never done it before. If you are just looking to learn, you can go somewhere like the Nordic center, but you don't need to confine your...

Re: Government Shutdown

The National Parks should have been locked as soon the shut down began. The lowest common denominator of human being would destroy everything because they think it is fun. The best thing that can happen is TSA employees not showing up for work to force the average person to suffer at airports.
