Re: Mindless weather chit chat

More than half the days in June were at or below normal, and 27 out of 30 were no more than 5 degrees above normal. That's a pleasant June in my book. While I agree June was quite pleasant, I'm either missing something or I must question your math... More than half the days in June were at or below...

Re: Woodbury Fire - Superstition Wilderness

I've hiked through a number of recently-burned areas over the years and have found plenty of beauty in the aftermath... different, yes, but beauty nonetheless.

At least the TV weathermen/women seem to think so... all I heard last week was "Get ready, monsoon season begins June 15"
It can wait... I'm enjoying hiking in the low humidity.

No need for a Tonto pass to park there.
I can't remember if there is a sign prohibiting overnight parking but I personally wouldn't leave my vehicle there overnight.

Re: Hollingshead cave.

Holingshead cave is real it’s awesome actually amazing ! Dang! I wish I'd seen this thread last week... on Wednesday we were within 250 feet of it on our descent from the summit of Hollingshead. Can you get there without 4WD? My 4Runner is 4WD with a 2" lift and it did fine, albeit with a pretty ro...

Unfortunately, all but one of the hikes we planned are in the area expected to be impacted by the planned burnouts.

@joebartels We rented a cabin in Strawberry next week so that is the last thing we wanted to hear. ](*,) After we bailed on the AZT 27 backpack due to smoke, we almost canceled the rental soon enough for a full refund.

Re: Bears In The News

@chumley
Great video... the cub is definitely a Honnold!
I checked out the video description which stated they were endangered Mexican Black Bears.

Scanning the comments on the video, I couldn't help but laugh at this one:
"Mexican bears. Did you read that? They can climb walls."

In other words, don't be planning a hike on AZT #27 for a while... which we found out first-hand today. ](*,) Months ago Tracey had planned another 3-day backpack, hiking on AZT #27 from Forest Road 751 South, exiting by Pine. However, just north of Mt Ord the skies were smoke-filled from horizon-to...

Re: USGS Survey Markers??

@rcorfman I may be wrong, but based on my experience locating Reference Marks I've always used the number after METERS (in this case) as the direction in degrees, like so: U2086| CH5529 SUPERSTITION RM NE 1.760 METERS 04312 | = 43.12° (roughly Northeast) DU2086| CH5531 SUPERSTITION RM 3 6.053 METER...

Only from the north.
As long as the creek wasn't running excessively by Ellison ranch I've never had any issues from the south.

Re: Basecamp near Reynolds creek

@BRichard I'd settle for Honey Creek Divide. There are many hikes within a 10-15 minute drive of there, and best of all, there are numerous hiking options right from the campsite. When we camped there in June 2018 one of our hikes was to Reynolds Creek along Forest Road 3222. On another hike we wen...

Re: Snake Gaiters -worth it?

Wearing gaiters as a DETERRENT? I seriously doubt rattlesnakes care whether someone is wearing one kind of gaiter over another, or even whether one is wearing gaiters at all...

@Alston_Neal
I agree... seems to me strike-proof is a great deal more important than strike-deterrent.
