Re: What determines "extreme" wildflowers in your triplogs?

for me, it's about quantity. what percentage of the landscape is covered in any flowers? if it's 1 percent, that would be isolated. and then as the percentages go up, so does my opinion of how flowerific everything truly is. also, as joe mentioned - i do like variety, especially seeing a flower in t...

What determines "extreme" wildflowers in your triplogs?

Instead of hijacking someone's triplog (sorry tibber), i thought this topic might be a good discussion. what do you think makes the difference between light, moderate, or even extreme wildflowers? is it variety or is it quantity? discuss. oh, and if someone can make a poll for this, that'd be awesome.

Re: Best Mexican Food Restaurant in Superior/Miami/Globe?

I had a burro at chalo's last night coated in butter (still delicious btw, chalo's is still my favorite) and then I got a tortilla this morning at breakfast at el ranchito soaking with butter. Someone please explain this phenomenon....

Re: Like to say...

I know there is at least one other marker that is from a foreign country (chumley), and they don't do things quite the same, eh? i'm considering a catch-all for things like that as well as lesser photographed survey markers such as cave markers, public park markers, etc. that don't really fit into o...

Re: Like to say...

Not sure where to put this, since there are two forums that mention the various types of survey marks. Since I've been hanging out with a surveyor lately, I've learned that not all of these markers are benchmarks. So... I recently created two new culture labels for different types of survey markers:...

Re: overheating in 110-degree-plus heat

Who find 110 far easier to hike in than +10? Or -10, for that matter. I do. Heat is a lot better than cold. i feel no great calling to hike in either extreme. i'm lucky in that i can drive 45 minutes and be on the top of mt. lemmon in the summer, and it's never that cold in the winter here. but eve...
