Re: Sighting on North Rim could be Gray Wolf

When we were at the North Rim in 2011, we saw what we are pretty sure was a wolf on the entrance road. it was at least 100 yards away. i did get a picture, but it was so far away that it really does not show up. I could not tell what kind it was, but I remember I did not think it was a coyote.

Hahaha. Yeah what ever happened to all those $50,000 Escalades fitted with a CNG tank to get a $25,000 rebate from you and me? I don't see them so much anymore. :roll:
They're at Wally World shopping with food stamps.

Re: AZ cold: down or synthetic?

MtnBart01,

No I believe Tim is not making them out of cuben anymore. I think mine is M50 or M90 and I can't say enough good things about quilts, especially Tim's.

Re: AZ cold: down or synthetic?

I prefer down. Look at the quilts Tim makes at http://www.enlightenedequipment.com
They are top notch and light. Most of my hiking is in the Appalachians, but they would work great in the southwest too.

Re: The stars!

My wife & I spent a couple of nights on Horse Shoe Mesa two years ago. I thought the night sky was pretty awesome even though we had a nearly full moon in the sky for a good part of the night. My wife swears she saw a ghost on the mesa one night, but by the time she woke me up I didn't see anything....

Re: Collins Spring to Kane Gulch - May 22-26, 2011

Big Load-Thanks for the info. Sounds like we may want to carry most of our water in. I can hardly wait, we've been wanting to do something like this ever since we went to Meas Verde a while back.

Sounds like you all had a great time. My wife and I will be backpacking in the gulch this weekend. Can someone give me a report on the water and daytime/night temperatures? Thanks.

Re: non-corridor backpack option from south rim...

You could also hike down the Grand View trail to Horseshoe Mesa and then go down beside the left arm and around and back up to the mesa via Page (Miner's) Spring. The trail down the left arm is fairly steep and mostly scree.There are fantastic views off the left arm of the mesa. If you do this hike ...

Re: Lite Tent?

@pencak
You're welcome. It did take me about 2 weekends and a couple of weeks of sewing every night to do it, but it's a great ultra light tent and roomy. The silnylon is extremely slippery and requires some patience to work with.

Re: Lite Tent?

If you've got access to a sewing machine and have the time you can make your own "Bilgy" tarptent. I made one , 2 lbs and it sleeps two comfortably. I have not had a chance to try it in the SW. If you're interested go to http://www.questoutfitters.com.
