Re: Fire in the Peaks

Coconino NF twitter tells me there''s a fire at what most of us call Doyle Saddle (maps call it Freemont) in the Peaks. There haven't been any thunderstorms around here in days, and that's probably the most popular campsite in the entire Kachina Peaks WA, so I'm go to go ahead and call this human-c...

Re: Joe Bartels hiking injury

Hey, Joe. In no small way did this website pretty much save my life or at least my sanity. When I moved to Phoenix, I knew no one. Had no friends. My family was 2K miles away and wouldn't be joining me for 9 months. Thanks to your creation, I found something in this life that A. I was pretty good at...

Inciweb reports that the plan for the fire includes burning the top of the mountain to reduce fuels and protect the cabin and lookout structure. Fire perimeter maps show all burned areas, including aerial ignitions and intentional burnout operations. https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/5209/3...

According to a map I just saw, the Boundary Fire is now on top of the Kendrick summit, and likely where the cabin is and possibly even the lookout. Can anyone in Flag verify that?

Re: 2017 Boundary Fire Kendrick Area Trails Closed 180 closed

Helicopter aerial ignition operations continue today near the Kendrick Mountain peak. The operations, in which incendiary devices are dropped from a helicopter to reduce dead and down fuels, began near the peak on Tuesday. The plan is to continue to use aerial ignition to bring fire slowly down the...

My biggest problem now, is that just about everywhere I'd want to go is Burning at the Moment, although there are still a few Areas that I would probably do... I won't be able to do anything unt...

Re: How many is too many?

This was sort of discussed with a similar thread started by Jason some time back. Maybe I am different on this issue, but for some reason I don't mind big crowds where I expect to get them; Camelback, Humphrey on a nice June Saturday, or where ever. Obviously, an upper limit has to be there, somewh...

Re: Camelback Christmas Tree

Hopefully they will ban the tree and if he resists, him too. It has ZERO to do with Christmas and all to do with trash, trinkets, foil and birdseed that don't belong in that environment.

But I have no dog in the fight as I wouldn't be caught dead up there. Not my cup of tea.
