    Ed Ketchledge dies at 85

    Whenever I am up in the Alpine Zone of the High Peaks, I think of his name and the work he did to preserve these fragile areas. Nice write-up here

    Phoenix AZ hiking -- Suggestions?

    Do the Flatiron! It's about 40 minutes from Tempe down the road in the Superstitions - Lost Dutchman State Park/Siphon Draw trailhead. A great 3-4 hour roundtrip hike up to a spectacular scramble up to the "Flatiron". Or you can just go up the draw to the bottom of the steeper climb...

    Crown Point ferry now up and running

    Oh no! But they are shutting down the Charlotte-Essex ferry after tomorrow until Spring, citing "ice." :rolleyes: Pretty bogus reason and short notice to a lot of folks.

    Small plane crashes into Santanoni Peak

    This bit of information is interesting. You would think they would have turned it on by now, unless it was damaged.

    Latest news The bridge can't be fixed - it needs to be replaced. They are going to set up a free ferry service nearby as soon as feasible. The Charlotte-Essex Ferry is now free for the time being.

    Lake Champlain Bridge closed

    Ferry service The Charlotte-Essex ferry has expanded its service, although it hasn't announced the winter schedule yet. It runs through the winter - depending on ice - but I'll bet they'll be sure to keep the channel open this year. It's a very sad...

    Who: hikes, climbs &or backpacks with a dog?

    Ha! I'll second the recommendation of Tom about K9 Topcoat. Tucker has hair, not fur and loves the cold weather. But snow, especially fresh snow collects on him and turns his coat into a sea of ice balls. I got the Lycra suit - not insulated - for him. I got it from the website. He...

    Merry pranks on Gothics.

    Yeah, it happens all over! In 1994 I was hiking the Kungsleden Trail in Northern Sweden with my sister. We were hiking hut-to-hut and didn't see a lot of people on the trail. Along the trail came two, very large German women hiking in their underwear, seemingly oblivious that their appearance...
