Re: An Alpine Symphony

It was a great show! Thank you for a great season.

What did you two think of the performance? Was Maestro happy?

Yes, excellent info in these last two posts. Thank you!

And we lovers of the Chiricahuas love an opportunity to discuss the place no matter the origin or impact of the original question! :)

Re: backcountry camping with hiking nearby in Chiricuahuas?

For sure—the Pinalenos have some beautiful trails and camping opportunities, but most of the trails have steep elevation changes that drop off the side of the mountain (with a few exceptions—some small loops up top, and the first few miles of the Clark Peak Trail), but the creation of the road alon...

If I were in that general area, I'd definitely rather hike in the Pinalenos. That could be just because I've driven past them so many times on my way to the Galiuros without taking a detour.
I love the Cheeries but the Pinalenos just might be even more of what you are after.

Re: backcountry camping with hiking nearby in Chiricuahuas?

The Crest Trail from Rustler Park south to and around Chiricahua Peak and some of its side trails including the loop around Fly Peak and out to Centella Point, plus spring access like Headquarters & Anita Spring all have been cleared by various volunteer crews in the past two months. Rustler Park i...

Re: Laurence Kosden, 69, missing in Chiricahua Mountains

Has there been any new information on either disappearance? Recently, a new friend urged me to read David Paulides' three books ("Missing 411") on missing people in National Parks (JasonCleghorn referred to the author a few posts above). I have not purchased them yet but think I might try the first ...

Re: Laurence Kosden, 69, missing in Chiricahua Mountains

Remember the good old days when we only worried about bears, mosquitoes and poison ivy in the Chiricahuas? Now its drug runners, serial killers, and mythical beasts. Sheesh. The last time I was there the 6 or 7 border patrol guys I encountered seemed MUCH more nervous than me. Of course, the idiots ...

Re: Laurence Kosden, 69, missing in Chiricahua Mountains

Both cases are still unsolved, right? Very sad. I hope that both are found. It must be terribly tough on the families.

Re: What type of spider is this?

Thanks, Quad! That is a good summary of the first half of the trail to Clear Creek. Despite the amazing views it does become rather tedious the farther one ventures towards Clear Creek. The endless cycle of drop-into-the-draws-and-climb-back-out wear on the body and the mind. But the reward is getti...

Re: What type of spider is this?

Yo Quadman,
I don't recall seeing one of these when I was there two different times. But I sure loved my experiences at Clear Creek. What did you think of the place? Did you hike up canyon? Down canyon to the river? (Sorry to wander off topic...)

Re: The Borderlands

So it has been two years since this discussion...what do folks feel about hiking in the southern area of the state nowadays? I spend my time in the Chiricahuas and this past weekend I saw 3 different BP pairs on the trails. One stated (when visiting my campsite) that they were tracking a group and l...

Re: backpacking to Anita Park/Anita Springs

As a long time (30 years) fan of the the Chiri's I never ceased to be amazed at the both the terrible fire damage there as well as the remaining beauty. It is still worth going there.
