Re: Missing Hiker In California

@LosDosSloFolks Nothing about his version of events really adds up. He claims she disappeared in the time it took him to photograph some rocks, and he suspects someone driving abducted her because she was holding a beer. If they were that close to the road to make that scenario plausible, wouldn’t ...

Re: Mt Charleston primitive camping w/ car

Are you wanting to be up in the pines, or down in the pinyon-type trees a little lower off Kyle Canyon Rd? If you don’t mind high desert/pinyon, I know of some spots. 4wd not necessary, but helpful, at least medium clearance.

@skatchkins It’s never too early. I bet we could get a smokin’ deal on these.

@markthurman53 Don’t take my word for it, but I believe so. If so, it’s the tree right smack in the center of the top picture in the image I posted.

Image of the 9:00am update. Looks like they are making some effort to protect the orchard and some owls.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

I think I’ve posted a link to this paper before, but basically, it says that springs with higher snowpack tend to be followed by drier monsoons.

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@DixieFlyer Thanks for the link. Good read. Seems like everything bounced back quickly, even though the first few years afterward were very dry. Obviously the saguaros will take longer, but it sounds like they are at the level you would expect at this many years out. Interesting that the human rest...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@hondah35 I’m talking about fires in the deserts and lower elevations, not pine forests. White Tanks, Estrellas, McDowells, west side of Picketpost, north of Cave Creek, etc, they’ve all burned. Can hardly tell now. Vegetation burns, then something grows back. Those mountains have burned before, an...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

The Superstitions will be just fine. Yes, it sucks that the fire was most likely caused by a careless person, but there are no indications that it was malicious. I think whoever started it, if they’re ever caught, should face restitution, jail time, whatever the precedent is for punishment for start...

Re: RS Route + Triplog

The merge option is great. I used it a few weeks ago for a short 2 day backpack, and it was very convenient to post all as one. I guess I haven’t seen it since it hasn’t come up for me lately, but at what point/where in the posting process can you edit the route before the final post? While still in...

@Tough_Boots I’ve never even read the comments from 2011. I was replying to the current conversation from the last couple of days, and you know that.

Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

@Tough_Boots Isn’t the whole point of this thread about dogs on/off leash? My comments are in line with that, and not off topic. I gave an opinion of mine—that a dog on a leash AND under control, which requires some effort and attention on the owner’s part, has a much lower chance of getting injure...

Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

@Tough_Boots I said I was assuming. You can come to your own assumptions. Either way, she didn’t have control of the dog, or the leash was too long. A leashed dog bit my hand (second dog bite in a little over a year) on South Mountain in December—it lunged at me and the owner didn’t control it. I g...

Re: Dogs on the trail... sans leash...

The woman who owns the dog needs to keep it on a leash. I hate encountering off-leash dogs when I hike. I don’t want a dog walking up to me or my kids, trying to lick my hand, whatever. HOWEVER, it seems like the guy hiking with a golf club was looking to hit a dog at the first opportunity he felt w...
