@friendofThundergod
I drove up to the top of Aztec Peak on FR487 back in April, and I thought that the area just after the falls was in much better shape than in prior years...of course that isn't saying a whole lot...lol...I felt like I really didn't need 4WD

Re: 2021 Fire Season

The Tonto Forest has now extended the Telegraph Fire Closure Order until December 31, 2021, unless rescinded before then. So there was only a one day window to be in this area.

I can't really tell by looking at the updated closure order, but it looks like Picketpost might be open.

Re: 2021 Fire Season

The Telegraph Fire Closure Order ended yesterday, so the area is no longer restricted.

That is an impressive rain total. I have 3.1 inches in my rain gauge since Thursday night, which isn't too shabby.

Re: Hiking Vehicle Tires

@DixieFlyer For the past 3 sets of tires, I've gone one size up from the OEM and saved $55/tire (prob about $270 for the set when all the extras are figured in). It doesn't rub and I get an extra 1/2" of clearance. I am pretty sure that going from 70 to 75 aspect ratio would not cause rubbing issue...
