Re: Horse Fire

Up to over 8,000 acres and climbing Towers Mountain in the latest update. Glad I got to hike a little bit of the BradShaw Trail #216 looks like that area is about to get torched 😢

Re: Horse Fire

Can see the plume of smoke from north Phoenix. Was in the area recently and it was incredibly dry. Not much more pines left in the southern Bradshaw’s hopefully this doesn’t torch them all.

Re: Where were you??

I was in 1st grade. I was at school. Teachers started crying but they didn’t tell us anything. Went home and then saw the news. I remember my dad was saying some not so nice things that evening... Didn’t understand the scope of everything but knew whatever happened was BAD.

Re: Old Baldy Trail #372 to Wrightson Summit, AZ :: Parking Fees

Might swing by one of these weekends to hike this trail. Is there still a parking fee? And does parking fill up on weekends? Worried since lemmon is closed everyone is going here.....

Re: Daisy Fire

I think this might also be called the Central Fire. At least that’s what it’s being called on the Tonto National Forest Facebook page

Re: Two Fires In NW Tucson

@Nighthiker

Wouldn’t surprise me at all. I was in that area a few weekends ago and was astonished how many people out camping, full size trucks hauling a** down those little forest roads, and cars and trucks parked in tall dry grass....

Re: 2020 Fire, Campfire & Stove Restrictions

@Jim_H
The wording is tricky. A stove fire is not allowed.. whatever that is (like a solo fire stove maybe) but below that in exemptions it says gas or propane grill or stove is ok still.... unless I’m reading it wrong.

Re: FR 41/FR 37: New River Mountain HP

@Jim_H The high point of the New River Mountains might be Squaw Mountain. If I remember correctly you take seven springs rd to fr 41, which will then take you to fr 37. Up until that point my 2wd frontier did fine.it was dry though. There was some serious ups and downs so if wet definitely need AWD...

Re: Accident on Piestewa Peak

@rcorfman I see where you are coming from but from a parents perspective they are life savers. Having a harness gives my wife and I the ability to still hike with our 3 month old and even our 2 year old. We know our limits and maybe in this incident they didn’t know theirs.. Between my wife and I w...

Re: Camping this weekend or next week

@Ampaz Coming from the south the road Is nearly pavement all the way to the campground. Might be 1-2 short stretches of dirt road. I drove through a couple weekends ago and saw sedans driving the road

Re: Hiking vehicles

@DixieFlyer My wife has a Forester and we love it. Mpg is really good and it Has been great for us with forest roads and even driving in snow. Has respectable clearance as well. We prefer to take it on 90% of our hikes and if the occasional road requires serious high clearance or 4wd we take my 4wd...

Thought this was cool.

It basically says that the Woodbury fire burned 538 acres at a high severity, 29,452 moderate burn, 65,735 low intensity burn, and 28,149 very low to unburned

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

@hondah35 You are not being salty. I agree with you. Our sky islands to a desert rat like myself are so precious. And when these sky islands which have limited forest to begin with burn and stands of pine are replaced with manzanita etc, I personally think is devastating. Now I’m all about fire and...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

Absolutely devastating. I wonder if there’s any hope that in the higher elevation areas and moist canyons the fire might burn at a lower intensity/ more mosaic pattern?

Re: Whazzit???

@LosDosSloFolks Yeh I figured, there’s at least a few of those fences in the washes along that road. Can’t say I’ve ever seen that type anywhere else.
