Not completely but I wouldn't recommend it to someone inexperienced hiking in Arizona heat and terrain. Just do some research and be prepared.

Re: May start date NOB

however, I don’t have any experience with the Arizona weather. Not to be too discouraging-- but you should really take a close consideration of the temperature, amount of full sun exposure, and possible dryness you will encounter this time of year. Most locals stop dayhiking in low elevations by th...

Canicross is a running sport (generally cross-country)-- I've never heard of it being associated with hiking.

Re: Hiking with dogs

Hands-free leash/harness systems are generally intended for people who run or trail run with their dog. Being pulled by a dog actually makes hiking more difficult (even uphill). I imagine each hiker was merely driven to repeat the same bad joke to everyone they passed because they realized how silly...

Re: Mazatzal Wilderness Info Sought

For example, is there a trail / social trail up Mazatzal Peak? It's probably snowed in during March, but might be worth a shot. Mazzie Peak is great though there is no trail or social trail-- there's a few cairns but you may or may not stumble across them. Most summit via Ybar Saddle and bushwack u...

So the FS sent you to conduct official business that necessitated the assistance of another agency without setting that up with the other agency... and you're blaming the state park? I call BS.

Re: Non-cotton active sports shirts

I still don't really understand what's happening with people's clothing here. I've never had a stinky shirt that wasn't fixed by a simple washing. I wonder if it has to do with the type of deodorant some people use. Antiperspirants that contain aluminum often don't wash out completely-- that could b...

You should burn that Falcon guide. Someone should be jailed for continuing to print it.

This website is a great resource with recent triplogs and GPS routes for that entire area.

True... but less so on a local level. It's become fairly common for popular propositions to get knocked off the ballot because they didn't hold water when under professional legal scrutiny. Legislation is useless if not written correctly.

I wouldn't worry. The quick turnover of Drumpf appointees has rendered most of them useless. Off/on subject--want to make America "great" again---ban all lawyers from ever holding any public office. I don't think filling the legislature with people who don't understand how to draft legislation is a ...
