Humphrey's (AZ) Trail Conditions

Considering heading down that way this weekend and can see from the webcam that there is a bit of snow and potentially more to come. Anyone been up there the last couple of days? Couldn't see anything past January in the Climber's Log.

Thanks!

California Ridge crash site

Traversed California Ridge today (between I-15 and Valley of Fire) and found a lot of scattered but mostly very small debris up high about 100' beneath the crest, ~2 miles (?) north of where the road to Weiser Mine cuts thru it. Unable to find any info online, does anyone happen to know anything about this site ?

Moving to Phoenix?! Looking for info

I haven't been very active the last couple of years here on SP but I haven't been very active in the mountains either. I was kind of in a hibernation state in the Midwest except maybe a weeklong trip every other year to CO.
I might have an opportunity to move to the Phoenix area (currently in Chiagoland) working in Tempe and I was looking for some info from the locals. Where are good areas ...

Current Winter Conditions-- Red Rock Canyon

A week from now, I'll be out there and planning to climb a few peaks. What has the winter been like? Specifically, is there much ice in the canyons and on the slopes above them?

Some places/routes I'm considering:

Oak Creek Canyon
Wilson via Hidden Bowl
Sandstone Mountain and scrambling route
Black Velvet Canyon and Peak

Snow level in western NV (Star Peak)?

Does anyone have any idea of the snow level in the Humboldt Range in Nevada? I'm going to be out west and would like to get up Star Peak, but not sure how good the roads are. Normally I wouldn't even be hopeful for the idea, but I hear it's been a dry winter out that way...

Thanks!

NM Contributor Scott Hsu quoted in National Geographic

Summitposter Scott Hsu was mentioned as a local skiing resource when it identified Los Alamos as one of America's best secret ski towns. Congrats to him. I think that is pretty cool.

Best Tucson area hikes & backpacks

Enjoyed a recent backpacking excursion into Aravaipa Canyon, and was told by some Tucson locals that their area is pretty amazing. Anyone have any gems to share? I'm interested in heading back there next year for some more hiking/backpacking/peakbagging, and would be extremely grateful for any recommendations.
