Re: Needle Canyon water

someone on the GET forums said there was no water in the entire (what, mile?) of needle. this was of last 2 weeks. i found that hard to believe, since we saw water in geronimo's ravine and again in peter's just last week... and the pool right near the needle/boulder intersection is about 8' deep cap...

Re: Cold weather backpacking up North

i use a shorty underquilt rated to (approximate) 20°and a 32° topquilt. i actually pushed this combo down to 17 degrees once or twice. btw, direction of your travel has little to do with temperatures. there are a dozen big mountains in southern arizona where you can also freeze your ass off all you ...

did you happen to see any pools in campaign near the fireline intersection (near that little ponderosa grove where the creek goes underground)?

Re: Looking to go backpacking for a night...where do you suggest

getting away from the heat requires that you go UP, which direction you drive according to the compass has no bearing on this . so, go UP to mt. lemmon. wilderness of rocks trail is a good area. water in the creek about 3.5 miles in. and a good campspot or two can be had. although, there will be ppl...
