I was in Kanab on the 4th of July and almost made it to Zion. We ended up cruising around the Coral Sand Dunes NP. Very interesting area, a giant bowl of orange sand. I'm looking forward to getting back up to this area, it's so beautiful! :rollH:

Southern Utah

I know this is HAZ but I wanted to see if anyone had done any hiking in the Southern Utah area. I spent some time near Zion recently and didn't get to hike, but everything was so pretty. If anyone has any info I would appreciate it, I'm planning a trip up there before it gets cold.

If your into lakes try Big Lake in Apache-Sitgreaves. Nearby are also Lee Valley and Reservation Lake, both giving up good-sized Apaches, it's also a great place to camp.

As far as I know there are no problems in any other city except Phoenix! For some reason the biggest city in the state can't get a couple more fuel trucks out here. Just saw two stations down the street with about 50 people each in line with $2.10 fuel price. Luckily, I work at the airport and can f...

Table Top is a great trail with millions of cactus and great views and most of the trails in the White Tanks are nice, though I don't know if they fit the desert bill.

Personally, I would wait a couple months till it cools off. Last night was the hottest ever in Phoenix at 96, so even hiking in the cool part of the day is hot. The hike itself is great, I would take someone along though as there are some hairy spots on the way up. Check out the pictures/summaries i...

Just my luck, I get my car washed on Saturday and sure enough that night we get our first rain! Actually, it was the most welcome sight I'd seen in months. I don't know how the rest of the valley did, but Ahwatukee got a nice pelting for about an hour along with the wind and haboo that equal monsoon...

Thanks for the info Peter B., but I think I've decided to just stay away from Sedona altogether. I would rather drive a little further and pay nothing to be in solitude, instead of going to the new Disneyland! :cry:

Re: OUTSTANDING ARTICLE

In response to Marlee's reply:
I totally agree with you. I've lived here for three years and don't miss the craziness of Southern California. I hope more articles like this come out. I thought the heat would keep the riff-raff out, but maybe we need a little help from the City of Brotherly Love.

I'm in the communications business and my boss went up there yesterday to tour radio ridge and brought back pictures of complete destruction. The fire was so hot that it literally melted some of the towers. I'm really sorry it didn't get a chance to hike up here before this.

Ran into a group while doing a weekend in the Sierras and then at another trip nearby in Bishop. People just running around in their birthday suits. Haven't seen anybody yet in AZ, but I've lost my shorts in Fossil Springs, the current is very strong! :oops:

In response to Joe Bartel's reply:

I think a park is the best idea as well. If we did something in the late afternoon or evening, the weather has been very nice. Squaw Peak has a huge group area.

I was up at Fossil Springs yesterday and the top trailhead was closed. We were able to hike the lower Flume trail and it was beautiful. Monsoon season can't get here quick enough! :cry:

1. I don't think I pack silly things anymore, but I used to carry along my 45 S & W for bear safety. Then I saw my first bear up close and figured out that even if I plugged it, it would probably just get pissed off anyway, so now I'll just play dead. :gun: 2. I do carry a small signal mirror and so...
