Re: Shake Tree Canyon 4x4 RD location

The FR 415 extension of 1438 seems to be designated for closure under the proposed motor vehicle use plan Looks like a modified option C was chosen and both are marked as a "motorized trail". Until the map is printed it doesn't take effect, but from how I'm reading the final decision, both will rem...

Re: Shake Tree Canyon 4x4 RD location

I can't confirm there are signs posted anywhere along the route, but if you mean the bottom of STC (the top is in the wilderness and has no road access) then 415 takes you onto Shake Ridge but leaves more uphill hiking to get to the wilderness boundary (and may not be accessible due to the ranch whe...

Fingers crossed Hope you did ok. Radar estimates of a swath of 10+" across central Jersey to southwestern CT, the first ever flash flood emergency in NYC, an all-time record of 3.15" of rain in one hour in Central Park (breaking the old record of 1.94" set just 10 days ago!), and some astonishing p...

Re: Mindless chit chat

Not quite how it was predicted but there’s a conveyor belt of storms training right down I-10 into the airport that will probably make the official gauge look pretty good. It’s a pretty narrow band for now though.

Re: Mindless chit chat

But will it really? Well so far, the actual map doesn't come close to resembling the forecast. There's still time and looks like there may be some activity across the valley today or tonight. But except for a few select spots I think Nora 2.0 has been a bit of a disappointment. (v1 in 1997 was disa...

Re: Union wants to close some trails because "ermagherd so warm"

Heat-related injuries do not have to be heat-caused. Nor do dehydration and exhaustion, clearly. I can speculate on any number of other factors that could contribute to these outcomes. But I won't.

Pardon my confusion but you stating this surprises me. You have explained the scientific basis supporting limiting human activity based on heat. I’m interested in the data points that cause you to now feel conflicted on this topic.

In the name of public safety, I hope any future Grand Canyon policies that intend to keep visitors safe include the total elimination of the [ Rock Squirrel ] , as it is well documented to be the leading cause of injury to canyon visitors.
