@The Eagle. Daisy was pretty traumatized. I heard she hasn't moved from the spot where the dastardly deed was done. :o

Re: John Muir access points

Joe, John9L & Grasshopper, THANK YOU!! This is just the info I was hoping to find. You're amazing.

One other question: bookwise, which one would you say is the BEST definitive guide for the JMT? If you were to get 1 book to take with, which one would it be (if you feel there is a good one)?

John Muir access points

Anyone familiar with the JMT, know a reliable place to look up access points? Hope to start this this summer, but will need to break it into 2 or 3 summers, depending on access point availability. I know they are quite limited but figure there have to be some at least.

Re: Fire in the Catalinas

For you other Catalinas lovers: The storm yesterday also sparked a small fire around Charouleau Gap.

Fire in the Catalinas

Everyone, a storm cell just formed quickly in the Catalinas and created a bunch of lightning that started a wildfire about 30 minutes ago. I called it into 911, but it is not in a good area, don't know of any trails in the vicinity. It is west of Cathedral Rock, on the ridge facing Oro Valley. If I ...
