Re: Coronavirus and hiking

@hikeaz
That is insane. Is any hike or park worth dealing with a crowd like that?!

Re: Coronavirus and hiking

Phoenix City Council is voting on Wednesday on closing all city hiking trails to the public. This afternoon, I emailed the mayor and seven of the eight council members regarding my thoughts on that terrible idea.

Re: HAZ Window Decal: Whose looks best? (-:

@outdoor_lover Congrats on the new ride! What did you get?

I have one white HAZ decal if you (or anyone else if you don’t) would like it. I use the black decals since I stick them to a magnet (white coating) so I can transfer it from vehicle to vehicle.

Re: Bell on a Bicycle

@Hansenaz Yeah, I’ve encountered bikers moving so fast on busy trails they wouldn’t have been able to avoid an accident if someone didn’t move out of their way fast enough—ringing a bell wouldn’t have mattered. I’ve had to yank my kids out of the way of fast moving bikes before. Seeing bikes flying...

Re: Bell on a Bicycle

A courtesy ring by an approaching biker doesn’t annoy me at all, although I’ve usually stepped out of the way before ringing the bell was necessary. Incessant ringing would be annoying, but I’ve only heard that a couple of times, and the time spent within hearing distance was brief. I know some peop...

Re: Put On Your Freakin' Headphones

I think the majority, including myself, don’t like to hear other hikers playing their music on speakers, but what about audiobooks? I crossed paths on the trail today with a woman who was listening to an audiobook, and it did not bother me at all. Had it been music, I know I would have been annoyed ...

Re: Tusayan development

@chumley That’s fine, but my personal opinion is that it detracts from the enjoyment of the parks in a natural setting. These comfort accommodations are not a requirement, they may be granted at discretion. Now, since I know you hate the oversharing of personal information, even just one sentence, ...

Re: Tusayan development

@Tough_Boots Well, I think everything should go, but I’d be happy with just the lodging/food/gift shops disappearing. Those functions should all take place outside park boundaries by private enterprise. Return the parks to the more natural setting per the original intent. Less infrastructure = less...

Re: Tusayan development

@Tough_Boots If private concessionaires run everything in the parks, then why does the Park Service keep griping about not having enough $$$ in their budget for building maintenance? Bulldoze everything in the parks, return the parks to the more natural state they were intended to be, and then they...

Re: Tusayan development

@chumley But the gobs of hotel rooms and cabins and other development right on the edge of the South Rim in Grand Canyon Village is okay because it’s part of NPS? All that nonsense has a negative impact too. And a water pipeline in the Canyon is okay? I’d love to see all that disappear. I’d much ra...

Re: Tusayan development

I dunno, assuming a developer complies with zoning regs, water, FS access, etc, they should be able to develop their private land however they see fit. Doesn’t matter if it’s high-end, low-end, mixed use, whatever—their development, their choice. If you don’t like it or agree with it, then don’t spe...

Re: GPS coordinates on summit bench seat

@DixieFlyer I’m glad someone finally removed that garbage. The new bench seat (the sign that says Picketpost with the coordinates) still seems to be there, standing up as a sign now. Given the ridiculous amount of mourning on social media right now, I fear that something even gaudier will be lugged...

Re: Should ruins or caves on public land be secrets?

In my personal opinion, anything on public land is subject to online identification and publication. That doesn't mean I always think the publicizing of certain places is a good idea, it just simply means that I feel anything on public land is subject to becoming public knowledge. If someone finds a...

Re: Hiking with Dogs in the Tucson area

The Robles Pass Trails Park is the area south of Ajo Hwy right there. Dogs are allowed in that 1000 acre park, but must be leashed. Those trails are popular with the mountain bikers, so that makes it a little less enjoyable for hiking. Scroll down in the link to Robles Pass for a park brochure. http...

Re: Hiking Group Size Limit & Popular Destination Control

Okay, I’ll play along... From a personal perspective, I’m not a big fan of groups, but I don’t really care if I encounter them while hiking. The biggest hassle for me is getting past them if they are clueless about moving out of the way of other hikers. They tend to be noisy, which usually destroys ...
