Took a friend on a hike for her 50th birthday to go see the fall colors on the rim. Nice short walk.

Hiked with a friend, doing this loop counterclockwise and starting from the Oracle Ridge TH. My plan was to start at Red Ridge TH, but when I arrived there was a "CLOSED" sign ](*,) even though I carefully checked the USFS Catalina District website and they showed that both Red Ridge & Oracle Ridge trails were OPEN. I drove back to Palisades to speak to someone in that office, and her response was "yeah, I show that trail as open as well, but the Forest Services does a TERRIBLE job of communicating." She called someone at the Forest Service she knew in Sabino Canyon, who had the same response, so she said it was my call but to not worry about it, if the USFS really wanted it closed they should communicate it to the rangers and on the website. She also said that she has heard of the public up there taking the closure signs and moving them around to other trailheads? When I asked why, she said "I guess people are just being mischievous." : app :

To avoid further confusion I decided to start at Oracle Ridge TH, but there is no real parking at Oracle Ridge TH currently, it's now all marked off as "no parking". I spoke to someone a guy at the fire station, who told me to park in the small dirt space across from the fire station however, in one of the "no parking" areas and that it was fine.

I must say, that the crazy amounts of monsoon rain, the ground instability caused by the fires and the apparent fact that no one has done anything to maintain these trails, has definitely made these trails more challenging. Experienced hikers can generally keep up with the trail and a GPS helps at times when it seems to disappear, but you're basically hiking a ridge each way with an abandoned road at the bottom to connect them. The wildflowers, buffelgrass and other plants and weeds were THICK, and usually waist high but at times head high. You really have to be careful in it with your footing, as you can't easily see what you're stepping on, and if there is a critter in the weeds or if the ground is deteriorated under the weeds and unstable. At one point I did almost walk on a black rattlesnake, thankfully he shook his rattle one quick time to cause me to freeze until I figured out it was a rattler and where exactly he was.

I was also surprised to see the mining or excavating, whatever that was they were doing on Marble Peak. That peak is pretty torn up now, they have cut switchback roads all the way up it and even turned part of the Arizona Trail/Oracle Ridge Trail into parts of their highway. Noises from the excavating rang through the canyon between us as we passed by and you could see the heavy machinery doing their think up there.

Catalina Camp Trail was also choked out with waist and head-high growth, and at one spot there has been a washout that makes it a little challenge though not impossible to pass. What an amazing spot the camp cabin is! I walked up and took a peek around, even inside the cabin, and was surprised to see that it looks like it is still being used by someone, there was even a sleeping bag on the bed and other supplies along the edges of the cabin as if it has been recently used. I post pictures here of it. The chandelier in there is just priceless! :app: The creek was flowing well at the junction of Catalina Camp and Red Ridge, a few gallons per minute still and no stagnation. It was a very nice break spot.

Of the three trails, actually Red Ridge is by far in the best shape, which made me scratch my head again why that sign was at the trailhead. There was a small tree down over this trail just above the creek (where you pick up Red Ridge to go back up), and of course the closer you got to the top, the amount of wildflowers choked out even this trail in spots, but for the most part it was actually pretty decent and much easier to follow.

I really hope the Forestry Service finds away to put more time and attention into the Catalina trails. The more time passes, the worst shape they are getting into. I would suspect the Oracle Ridge Trail would be managed by an AZT trail steward, and I'm not sure why that's not happening right now, but so many of the USFS managed trails in the Catalinas just are closed and unattended, and having no one routinely walking on them is making a bad problem worse. There, that's my :SB: !

Return trip to one of my fave hideaway spots. Lots of water, and evidence of lots more water in the past week or two that has receded.

Epic hike across the TCT.

Day 1: Started at Teton Village, took the gondola partway up the mountain, then hiked the rest of the way to the edge of Rendezvous Summit, following South Fork over to Marion Lake. This hike took much longer than expected, as 3 hours into the hike we hit a major thunderstorm, that dumped 1-2" of rain for 16 straight hours. We were literally toward the end taking a step up the mountain trails and sliding back in the mud before we could take another step up. Even with ponchos and backpack shields, everyone's stuff was completely soaked. I wore a heavy duty trash bag and ziploc-bagged all my clothes, so I at least had dry clothes to put on, but others in the group did not and one person became borderline hypothermic. Thankful for my Wilderness First Aid training, knowing how to deal with it to restore his core temp, as rescue would have totally been out of the question during this severe storm. Thunderstorm continued into the night, with the rain turning to sleet and snow during the early morning hours, and two people's tents flooded. Just brutal.

Day 2: Storm cleared at 6am, and we had sunlight breaking through clouds by 9am. Spent the morning using sunlight to dry out clothes and gear on rocks and in trees. Made good time that afternoon, getting to Fox Creek Pass and hiking across Death Canyon Shelf to just outside the park boundary for our next camp. That area not ideal for camping, but we found a mesa that was relatively flat to camp on, and during the night another storm came. This one had some rain, but a LOT of wind. We estimated 60-65mph winds for about a half hour. I was literally spread eagle in my tent at 4:30am, with one and and one foot in each corner, trying to help the tent pegs hold!

Day 3: Hiked into Alaska Basin, then to Sunset Lake and over Hurricane Pass. Visited Schoolroom Glacier and the lake that the glacier made below it, as we hiked down South Fork Cascade to our campsite. While setting up camp we had a visit by a black bear, who didn't seem particularly interested in us, he was too busy flipping over boulders looking for insects to eat. Views from camp of Grand Teton were breathtaking! Hike partly on the Avalanche trail, but didn't go all the way due to ominous-looking weather that thankfully was just a threat this time.

Day 4: Hiked to North Fork Cascade and all the way to Lake Solitude, then back down to the lowest campsite along North Fork for the night. A couple of our crew jumped into the lake, which up until a few days prior still had blocks of ice floating in it. I was either too smart or too old to follow behind them.

Day 5: Hiked out Cascade Canyon to Jenny Lake, stopping off at Inspiration Point and Hidden Falls on the way out. Took the boat ride across the lake, and to the store to buy a peach slushie (yum!). Then made it to Dornan's Chuckwagon in neighboring Moose for a bison burger, and then to Colter Bay Campground for a desperately needed shower, the first in 6 days. :sk:

RECOMMENDATION: I used Peak freeze-dried meals on this hike instead of Mountain House. Way more protein, and more tasty by a mile! The Mountain Housers in our group were totally jealous, wishing they had spent the extra couple of bucks per meal!

Quick hike with a friend. Was hot and humid, upper 90s with 50% humidity and almost no cloud cover, so we didn't stay to do the whole loop. Amazingly green, haven't seen ocotillo this leafy and green in a long time!

Les a group of about 40 on this trip. Some turned around at cutoffs and only did part of it, 18 completed the full loop. Our group didn’t run into any bears, but both groups that split off to return to the trailhead early encountered a bear. Quite a few mosquitoes on the Deer Mound trail, the Crow Pass/Iditarod trail was much better, with a very slight breeze. Concerned a bit on time as some students were dragging and we needed to be out at a certain time for our pickup, so I bribed them, “be back at the trailhead by 3:30 and I’ll buy you a soda.” It worked on all the students AND the adults 😉.

What an awesome hike! Loved this today. Wanted to get in a good hike with views with my buddy Jason, and get out of the desert heat. So many fires burning so many good ranges, feel like options are limited these days. Remembered the Huachucas from doing Arizona Trail segment 1, so glad I did. Amazing views, birds chirping all over the place, and the fresh smell of pine in many places. Honestly I think this is one of my favorite ranges in the state. There were a couple of spots where we saw vestiges of illegal activity…oddly places pieces of clothing that upon closer looks revealed unofficial trails, and empty Mexican electrolyte bottles, but not too bad.

Ramsey Vista campground is so nice in that you start hiking at 7200 feet, so no hiking down to lower elevations in the heat of the day. Did the loop clockwise which was a good choice, though there were some warm, exposed spots near the end that were a little toasty even at 7000 ft.

Carr Peak is totally bare and exposed, unreal views. So much of this loop has incredible views, as you get a 360 view from beginning to end.

Surprised by how the AZT was almost totally unmarked in the section we did, especially with all the trails it crosses in that section.

Also surprised that we didn’t run into a single hiker the entire day. Granted it was a Friday, but still! This time of year?! With the limited options we have around Tucson?

Led a group of 13 younger seniors on a morning hike. We did the loop clockwise, then I took a few of them to the petroglyphs after. To slow myself down a bit so that I didn't go too fast, I added 3 weight places into my daypack, 40 lbs. That helped :sweat:
