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!

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 ...

Re: Ideas for Camping/Hiking in Jan thru late-March ?

Anza Borrego is nice but is getting busier. The southern end is a little more remote feeling I guess, the northern area near Borrego Springs and the off road areas are more packed. It is southern Cali after all! I noted your drive time but Saline Valley in Death Valley NP is a great place. Lots to s...

Well, did some nice hiking, some mine exploring, some short back packs, and more. Lost the boyfriend of over 10 years, lost 25 lbs, feeling a whole heck of a lot better and making more plans for more stuff to do. My photography is really driving me, and I am actually experimenting with some older le...

Re: Digital Cameras

For me the proof of the photo is printing out say a 13 by 19 on my old Canon 9000Pro Mark 2 printer. If it looks sharp and good even color saturation, the the camera has done the job, even with low post processing.

Re: Hiking vehicles

I have a netting I use from a craft store with magnets for the mosquito bug screen as needed in back. Also have a "plug" so can shut back door but it doesn't lock to be able to push it open to get out easily for the FJ. It has a fold down deck to level it for the bed. I have used the same 4 inch mem...

Re: Hiking vehicles

I sleep in the FJ and can sleep in the Jeep. Both vehicles have the rear seating removed and stored in the garage. Items that end up outside I usually put in dry bags in case of rain, under the vehicle. If I sleep outside it's a cowboy camp, want to see the stars. It is very nice inside when the win...

Re: Katie Lee passes away at 98

I was just thinking I should drop in for a visit. What a unique and interesting person. The old saying "they broke the mold when they made her" is so true. RIP, although the peace part didn't apply to her. She was a rebel. From what she shared with me, she had a full, exciting, purposeful life.
