Red Rocks Camping Thanksgiving

We are hoping some kind soul might get there before us and reserve a camping spot in our stead. We get there Wednesday 24th around 1-2pm. If you're planning on being there Tues or so please help us out. We'd pay for the extra night to not stress about it. And we'd bring some New Mexico goodies for you. Thanks. :D

Hiking in the Grand Canyon

I'm planning to go on a combined rafting and sidecanyon hiking trip in the Grand Canyon next year. At least for 10 days in all. For the moment I have hundreds - it seems so - of companies hoping for me to buy a trip with their company. Because they are the best, have the best guides, magnificent food etc.

Which company would you recommend and why. I will be 60 next year and in ...

AZ in Feb

Going to Arizona for a week (Tuscon) in mid February and looking to climb or hike something. I don't mind driving up to 4-5 hours if it is worth the trip. Any suggestions?

Truchas now or in a couple weeks Truchas now or in a couple weeks

Getting that feeling that I need to get out and climb again also don't know if I can stand another weekend of watching the embarrassments that are the Cowboys and Aggies. I am considering the Alamitos to Santa Barbara Ridge to Truchas route 35ish miles and 2 nights. I see in the forecasts that winter is starting to build in up high so I do not want to wait too long.
I am in eastern ...

Adopt Weavers Needle page?

While cleaning out some really bad pages, I came across the page for Weavers Needle: http://www.summitpost.org/mountain/rock/150850/weavers-needle.html.

It is not the worst page ever, but it is a real disappointment for one of Arizona's most spectacular peaks. If you have climbed the peak and think you could do a nice job taking care of the page, let me know. The owner has been inactive for a long time. After you revamp the page, I can erase ...

(can you say collective action/public goods problem? - nerd humor).

I mention this because I know not everyone ...
