Memorial Day W/E > Tonto Creek <

Hi, Friend's Hiking Club is hiking/canyoneering Tonto Creek over Memorial Day. This is going to make a terrific long w/e getaway. We'd likely need 3+ to 4 days, though. "Tonto Creek is a massive drainage in the heart of the Mogollon Rim country. After heavy rains, it can flow up to 60,000 cubic feet...

I use a Therm-a-rest; however, there are a few viable alternatives; some of which, under certain circumstances, would be a better alternative.

Not "exactly" what you were hunting, but you'd not need to carry a jacket/parka with this.....

Campmor had a Kelty Haiku (5700 ci.) for 129.00 (down from 200) that I purchased about a month or two ago. The weight is <4#, which rivals most 3000-4500 pack weights. Additionallly, you'll be equipped for a longer trip if the spirit ever moves you. It has a sleeve for a bladder, but I'm a nalgene g...

3 day BP

If a shuttle is a possibility, you might try Peralta T/H to Canyon Lake T/H. in the Sup's. As well, Rogers Cyn. then Frog Tanks around to Reavis Ranch, then back out the Reavis Trail to the Rogers T/H is nice, as well. ( an added bonus is that you could visit Circlestone on this loop) Or, from Peral...

Water @ Angel Basin

In the creekbed (off the trail) upstream of the ruin there is a spring, which most certainly has water. It is generally stagnant looking, but there should be plenty. I've been there over a dozen times and no matter the season, there has been water. Yes, including this past summer. Have a good trip. ...

Agua Fria Hiking

A nice hike (requires a shuttle) would be from the canyon east of the Sunset Point rest area and take out at Badger Springs. Trailhead begins at the east side of I-17 right at the Sunset Point rest area. From the canyon follow east on cow trails in the canyon bottom about 2 miles or so. Then as you ...

Canyon de Chelly

Other than the trail into Whitehouse ruin, you will need to be accompanied by a guide to enter the Canyon. If you have a 4x4, you can P/U a guide at the visitors' center. I believe that they charge 8.00, or 10.00 per hour. You, then, DRIVE into the Canyon & can access the ruins and pictographs, etc....

Gila Wilderness IS OPEN !

I spent Memorial W/E hiking the Gila Wilderness (NM). Yes, it's a bit far (4.5 hr.); but it is beautiful, and, best of all, OPEN. They do have a "no fire" rule in effect, but no other restrictions; and no Red Rock Pass. There are hikes of all types, and hot springs abound. Elevations range from abou...
