I'm glad it wasn't any worse. When the big winds come, the damage seems like a matter of luck.

Re: Mindless chit chat

I forgot to mention, last week we got heavy smoke in NJ ducted from the Oregon fire for a couple days. Surprisingly, we've otherwise had good air quality all summer.

Thank for the info. It may be a while before I'm ready to back up from the Reavis North TH, but I'm still curious.

Is that as far as the road is open? I haven't heard anything about repairs in a long time.

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

It's mostly out of towners giving us a problem. Is it? This is one of the statistics I’d like to know. Details please. I have several problems available if anyone needs help skewing the statistics. Seriously, though, people who haven't experienced it don't have any concept of how much faster you de...

Re: Mindless chit chat

Did it wash the stink away? Since you mention it, no, it didn't (quite literally). With three muggy days of no power with temps in the 90s, garbage day included most of the contents of everyone's refrigerators. Needless to say, the garbage trucks were over capacity this week, and they left a a pudd...

@big_load What 3rd world State do you live in? :-k :stp: ](*,) The worst. Part of the consolidation of energy providers means that when our electricity goes out, it's almost always repaired by someone who has to drive out from Ohio or Indiana. The small number of local crews deal with areas of high...

Re: Mindless chit chat

We have power back after almost three days out with highs in the mid 90s and humidity through the roof. Now the remains of Elsa are on our doorstep and new outages may be in store.

Re: Desert varnish

I'm surprised that it wasn't already known in detail. I always assumed it was a biofilm.

Anyway, it was fun for me that Alston cited phys.org, since it's one of my favorite sites to read.

Re: FR 487

The notice makes no explanation. But the attempted stabilization of the roadway and "bridge" (I use that term loosely) just below the falls may be a potential culprit. They completely overhauled the bridge below the falls not all that long ago. The bridge/culvert higher up appear less robust as I r...

Re: Butte named for legendary Canyon hiker

I've wandered around off-trail throughout the Canyon and without fail would come across evidence of human habitation from prayer circles to petroglyphs to century plant/agave roasting pits to shelters/granaries. In 2019 I was hiking the Escalante Route with some buddies and I took a few extra steps...
