Re: Most Remote Place in Arizona

I would say just about any spot in the Blue will be pretty remote, lots of turkey out there too, and you can always hope to hear a lone howl at night How long ago were you on Steeple Trail? I usually go out there a few times a summer, and at the end of last summer I ran into the Blue Crew cutting ne...

Re: Glacier Natl Park

Well I know a few trails for day hikes, mostly I go for extended backcountry trips up there though If your on the east side, staying on the blackfoot reservation?, you cant go wrong with trails from two medicine, absolutely amazing, but then again to me, the whole park is if possible (quite a bit lo...

Re: Off the Beaten path

I went and looked at some Topos of the area, theres actually a trail between twin buttes and doll baby - doubt it gets much use though then drop down into the canyon.... from there it looked like youd have to follow it to the confluence with the verde and back out to TB Sounds like a good trip, I ca...

Off the Beaten path

Re: Ash Creek #307

Now Im having trouble remembering...... I thought that section, and we are on the same page, was in-between the falls and oak flat, at any rate though, when I climbed the lower section (last august) it was heavily overgrown and extremely steep and slippery, I dont know if you could follow the trail,...

Re: Ash Creek #307

I havent hiked the trail in the direction you are thinking of, but I have hiked well down past the falls and Oak Flat, and that is a very very steep and overgrown section, it isnt the easiest thing to do in good conditions The weather can really hit you up there too, the last time there we were hit ...

Re: Any Experience with these Bags?

I looked at the UL versions of the montbell but i cant rationalize spending an extra $100+ for only 6-8oz ouces in weight difference

dont really care whether they are on sale or not, just ran across these in my incessant bargain hunting

Re: Any Experience with these Bags?

What is the name of it?

Funny - I wasnt even in the market for a bag, noticed cheap ones thought huh an extra, now im looking for a new one for myself rather than a backup or friends use

im thinking of one of the following two, probably the first as i really enjoy cold weather backpacking

Re: Superstitions

Maybe Reavis Ranch Via 109 South

Its about the same in elevation gain ~1800ft,

but you have water at the ranch, cutting quite a bit of weight off those packs, which will probably be most of the weight with the weather generally being great at that time of the year

Any Experience with these Bags?

Re: Weather in the Supes

Thats about what i was thinking,

20's arent so bad, Ive been in a lot worse before - in fact my last hike out there was when the big storm hit, and the whole area was covered in 3-6ft of snow!

The HAZ Factor, is really cool, I havent been on the site as much as I used to, when did that get put in?
