Storm clouds coming in this evening quite beautiful, the bright sun against the dark skies. Hope we get something out of it.

Already been for this year. I am down here now because it is incredibly beautiful with the rains and usually no traffic.

Re: Tour of the Borderlands

Well, nobody wants to hike with me, not that I blame them. Heading out in a few minutes, High temps Nogales predicted at 82 degrees 50% chance of t storms. Got spanked down here last night. Should be awesome in several places as to water, hopefully not too much flooding on the road to get there.

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

Got slammed last night briefly, but standing water in yard and streets were running. Approaching was quite beautiful, the setting sun turning the rain orange and a weird rainbow/ sun dog in it briefly. No pics as roofs of houses obscured part of it.

Anyone who would like to join me in their own vehicle is welcome. You wil...

Past Ruby heading into Arivaca quite a few places, the normal , with pools and debris on the road. Past Arivaca to the checkpoint quite a few areas with ...

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

All it needs is for a nice rainmaker to park itself over one area. Fri nite Nogales calls for 1-2 inches of rain, not a lot as dry as it's been but I can hope. I'll just be glad to get wet!

Re: Mindless weather chit chat

If the forecast pans out might have to head down south to my favorite haunts to capture some flooding washes and highs in Nogales area projected to be under 80 degrees. We shall see!

Re: FS to remove Salt River wild horses

Saw some feral horses in the San Rafael Swell, with little ones, and a dead cow on the Cedar Mesa despite many signs all over up there of cows on the road. I had a calf run out in front of me along the road to Ticaboo and I was able to lock the Toyota up and miss the little bugger. The FJ would have...

Death Valley Favorite reopened after closure in 2008

https://www.nps.gov/deva/learn/historyculture/keane-wonder-mine.htm I was there back in the day, really a neat place. Although they have covered the openings I've been there and done that. What I do remember was the incredible view down the tramway to the valley way below. I am headed there next wee...

Re: Barry Goldwater and Cabeza Prieta

Roads if dry have very sandy stretches. Of course permit required. Christmas Pass has some short rocky sections, can't remember if 4wd needed. I would take something to stuff under tires in case bogged down in sand. And I am not sure if AWD vs 4WD is allowed on the range. Sierra Pinta summit great v...

Re: What's your least favorite?

Since I do not hike on trails very much I do not have a least favorite. Some would say my recent hikes have mucho boring photography, but I like the desolation of the desert I believe moreso than the forested areas. I do like areas with water and rock, but rock wins out for me.

Re: Little Horn Mountains

Been to the "royal arch" in the area and done some off trail, haven't done the "peak". Most of the mountains are somewhat rugged looking. Coyote peak near the highway is impressive looking and might be technical at least from my view. Roads are good but sandy in general. A very bad area if lots of r...

Re: Won the Wave Permit! Please help!!!

As everyone else has suggested, Buckskin, the general area is great. White Pockets is great, if damp is better with the sand slightly wet for driving in ( not for the rest of those clay based roads). Off Cottonwood Canyon road you could day hike Yellow Rock out of the Hackberry canyon TH, no permit ...
