I didn't see it, but a reliable source (FS Fire Lookout) told me the San Francisco Peaks got a dusting of snow yesterday morning (9/23).

Re: Beeline Hwy or Hwy 87

I drove up Friday 9/28. Left Tempe at about 2pm. There were a couple of sections of single-lane restriction between Ft. McDowell and the 4-Peaks road, but no traffic back-up at all. Slower traffic in the construction areas caused the trip to be about 10 minutes longer than normal. (The Sunday return...

Happy birthday and enjoy the trip! --- Also, Payson (airport) got hammered with 3.96". I got to see a nice flash flood on North Sycamore Creek running into the East Verde near the...

Re: Beeline Hwy or Hwy 87

It's been 3 weekends since the lane restriction started.

Any reports from the past two weekends on how the traffic flow is going?

Re: fall colors backpacking

My best recommendation: Look at some HAZ photosets for hikes you are interested in doing. Find photos in the date range you are going and see how the colors look. I believe that the 2nd week in October is usually a week past the peak color for Aspens at the higher elevations such as Kachina Peaks. I...

Hiker dies on 8-mile hike in east Mesa

Another sad story.

While the article doesn't indicate the cause, I suspect heatstroke is a possibility.

The hiker had just moved here from North Dakota.

The area you're talking about falls entirely within the Mesa Ranger District of the Tonto National Forest. I haven't ever set up camp that close to town, but there are numerous recreation sites and campgrounds near the river. Virtually all of them require the purchase of the Tonto Pass. A map of the...

Re: Salt River Camping Trip

You'll have to be a bit more specific as the Salt River is more than a couple of miles long.

Lower Salt? Along/between any of the 4 lakes? Upstream of Lake Roosevelt?

I found an explanation of the Rattlesnake Quiet Area that I thought might make a helpful addition to the Old Munds Highway trail description.

Re: Please Boycott Phoenix Summit Challenge

Link works fine for me. Sad story. Phx should realize that an event like this, like the PFChangs Marathon will ultimately benefit the city if they just structure the contract correctly (and mostly stay out of the way).
