For HAZ OUTING 3/12 to 3/15/09: "Catclaw Revenge" (Base Camp/Hiking/ Trail Maintenace - Woodbury TH to Tortilla Pass on JF Trail #106).. http://www.hikearizona.com/dex2/viewtop ... f=4&t=3727

On Dec 18-19,2008, SuperstitionGuy(Owen) and I started discussions on planning a HAZ outing (for a backpack trip out of Angel Basin in the Superstitions & a base camp under Byous Butte) to take revenge on all the JF Trail#106 and Rogers Canyon TR#110 catclaw overgrowth between the Woodbury TH to Angel Basin. I agreed to handle the organizing and logistics for the Byous Butte Base Camp group which would assume responsibility for trail maintenance from the Woodbury TH to Tortilla Pass (3.3mls one way).

This trip served a couple of opportunities "to give back a little" from all the enjoyment I take for granted hiking our wonderful AZ trails, and also an opportunity for me to again visit one of my favorite Spring AZ desert camping locations under Byous Butte. I had little trouble convincing some of my personal hiking and camping friends-Tom & Gary to join me for four nights of camping(3/11 to 3/15) and two day of planned trail maintenance(Thurs-3/12 & Sat-3/14). It was also nice to personally meet HAZ- tibber(Angela) and snakemarks(Kat) who joined in on all the "catclaw revenge" fun on Sat-3/14. Also, nonot(Steve) came in to join us later on Saturday morning to trail maintenance a .4ml section of trail from Tortilla Pass toward Angel Basin and Steve also stayed-over at my Byous Butte Base Camp Saturday night to work on a section of trail Sun-3/15 from Rogers Trough TH to the Cliff Dwelling... THANK YOU ALL for your help and fun memories of a great Spring'09 get-away in our Superstiton Wilderness! Also, my sincere thanks to SuperstitionGuy(Owen) for having to coordinate numerous "behind the scenes" issues(teleph calls/personal trips) with our USFS-Mesa Ranger Station to obtain approvals for us to perform this needed trail maintenance! :DANCE:
