Re: Hiker Missing In Cherry Creek Area

The Water and Road was still so bad today that they had to airlift crews into the area. They focused their search on one area of the Canyon where he was last seen and they found him.

Re: Hiker Missing In Cherry Creek Area

This is a couple of friends of mine. There is still a Flood Warning in that area until tomorrow afternoon. Tonto Basin received nearly 2" of Rain on Saturday and the area that they were in, Waterslides/Bull Canyon/Deep Creek, received as much as 4". The Sheriff's Dept. isn't even sure that they can ...

Re: Aravaipa Canyon, AZ :: Question by Peter_Medal

@ddgrunning Hell's Hole will take you the most time. Depending on whether this will be a weekend or not, I would probably go straight to Booger and explore Booger your first day and camp there. Do Horse Camp and Virgus on the 2nd Day and if you get done early, pack up and camp at Hell Hole the 2nd ...

Re: Tusayan development

@chumley Yes, for "commercial use". But nothing said about the Residential Aspect of the Project. That Water will be provided by the Town of Tusayan, who is using Ground Water for it's supply. Apparently the Developer is talking about trucking the Water in from somewhere else for it's Commercial Pu...

Re: Tusayan development

I think part of the problem as Jim mentioned is Water. If they drill enough wells to sustain such a development, they will inevitably affect the Water Table for miles around. And that could affect some important Springs in the area. I think Water is one of the biggest issues of the whole thing.

Re: What belongs on a peak or overlook?

It's interesting. Elephant Head is a good example. Although it's interesting and somewhat funny, none of those "trinkets" are contained, so they can end up all over the place around there. If there's a Register, in an ammo box for example and someone leaves a ladybug in it at ladybug peak, I general...

Be careful what you wish for. It could realistically happen. Just be prepared when it does for the 30 comment thread on Redflex Corruption when someone posts a picture of a road.

And btw, my favorite color is green. :D

Re: Should ruins or caves on public land be secrets?

I will return there this spring and I will do a video. Showing all of it. But only because they are already federally protected and well known to the public. You also have to have a permit to be there, and rangers patrol when in-season; my making a video is not going to put those particular ruins a...

Re: Off Trail/Route finding skills - how to learn/where to start?

Part of Route Finding is also about finding the safest, easiest and most effective way to get to your destination. When you know you're going to be bushwacking, you try to find routes that aren't as thick. Some of the Route Finding happens as you go, when you see the Terrain in front of you. When yo...

Re: Off Trail/Route finding skills - how to learn/where to start?

A Topo Map is your best friend. You need to learn how to really read a topo map and with that and your Compass, you don't ever have to rely on a GPS. I didn't even have a GPS until January 2018 when I finally got a smart phone. :lol: The GPO puts on a good class, that's a start. No matter what Hike ...

Re: Outdoor Ethics

But I have grown to realize that the only person’s wilderness ethics I can control are my own. And that's a good thing. but that doesn't mean you can't educate. And if you think it's ok for some wilderness to be overrun and abused, and everyone thought that way, then pretty soon the areas you enjoy...

@chumley Ok, you win. :sweat: I was wrong about the "Originals". When I was there in 2018, it had slats, (apparently a Pool Fence) just not the same ones. When I hit the Peak up there on that trip, I was really distracted from a very close call, slightly injured, and my cousin was already sitting o...

who cares its Hackberry. That's pretty sad actually. Hackberry actually has some importance to the ecology of that area with a somewhat dependable spring. But I guess 30 kids playing around and it and possibly screwing it up would have absolutely no impact on you. It's a beautiful area in there. I ...
