Re: Painted rocks being hidden at New Mexico national park. It needs to stop, rangers say

@corwinwilkins
Trash also becomes "artifacts" after a certain amount of time - but until then, it's just trash.

And it's not "a painted rock" - it's dozens of them in some areas ... and it definitely violates LNT.

Nice! Dief is a bit of a local legend in climbing circles too. I believe he even owned one of the early climbing gyms in the area, back when I used to go there in the early 2000's.

Re: The Most Deadly Animals In North America

It seems to me that most bee deaths are not hikers. They are landscapers or people just working around their homes and they disturb a hive. Not much chance of bears or mountain lions attacking under similar circumstances.

Re: Tent pole repair

Cord on my BA Copper Spur stretched out beyond usability from just sitting in the bag for a couple years! Shipped the poles back to BA and they restrung it for about $20 total. Or they would have just sent me the cord for DIY for $4.

@rustyshackleford135 Well we weren't talking about Native Americans - but you guys are good at changing the subject ... so, no - I am still living on stolen Native land. At least I acknowledge it.

Re: Quicksand??

Hiking poles won't help, and it's not just shallow wet sand that your feet sink into. Real quicksand just looks like all the other wet sand you're walking on along the river ... except when you step on it you INSTANTLY sink - like plunging into a pool. Then the sand and water instantly solidify into...

Re: Quicksand??

I once got stuck in quicksand up to my thighs near the Badger Springs/Agua Fria confluence ... it's real! I was alone and it took me about 20 minutes to work my way out.

Re: Arizona wildlife sightings

@Canyonram Wow - so cool! I've never heard of that before ... would be fun to see. You may have something there ... they do see to mostly be crossing in one direction in the Spring, and back the other way later in Summer. So a little mini migration for breeding - I love it! The road doesn't really ...
