Mental deficiency? Don't be so hard on yourself, Alan. I'm sure it's just an iron deficiency. Wink

Not bad, Jim! Very Happy

Here's what I hope it isn't:

Iron on the brain

Accumulations of iron are often detected in the brains of people suffering from neurodegenerative diseases. But it is often not known whether such accumulations contribute directly to disease progression. The identification of the genes mutated in two such disorders suggests that errors in iron metabolism do indeed have a key role.

Maybe this discussion should move to the "Why do you hike" thread. Confused

Good point. Unfortunately, in my case it would expose my contradictions. I already gave what I thought was a pretty good justification for hiking based on solid state physics.

Correct about the photos. I've been following the Big Horn Ridge thread with some interest since I at one time had considered it as well. I got to see it from 3 different perspectives on Saturday: From the Heaton Flat trail, from the Glendora Ridge, and from Lookout Mountain. The upper half looks to be no problem. The lower half however looks appalling due to heavy brush. However one attacks it I think will be a struggle. I couldn't really see any obvious weakness. I also took some photos of both Coldwater and Cattle canyons. I may try to caption some of them if I have time.


Thanks for adding the captions Rick. Great recon photos from both sides of Big Horn Ridge. I'll put down my thoughts on accessing the ridge in the Big Horn Thread later.

Ditto on the thanks for the captions. Photo IMG_6435.JPG appears to be the ridge that runs just north of Fossil Canyon which was one of the routes we were looking at.

Ugh. Lots of nasty brush.

I believe that's correct. Looks fun doesn't it? Someday that overgrown ridge will burn. Then it will be a whole different story.

Uh, sure. Shocked

Seriously though, that brush doesn't look like much fun. I'll have to take a look in person some time. I do recall from the last time over there on the HF trail that the brush is bad.

The good news is that the Fossil Can. N ridge does look doable in terms of grade and navigability, and then BHR above it (above point 6388), reaally doesn't look that bad. The trick is just to get to point 6388. (Oh, is that all?)

Perhaps successive waves of lopper wielding scouting trips? Geez, what am I thinking? Now who has the mental deficiency? Laughing

Heh. I'll admit to thinking it, but I didn't want to say it. Shocked

Thanks for the photos of BHR, as said. It looks good.

Good job Rick!

Photo ID: 89831. You noted: "Timber Mountain?" I believe that is a nice photo of all three T's. From left to right: Thunder, Telegraph. and then Timber with Icehouse Canyon below.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I'd like to see you find a webcam with a frame rate faster than Rick's manual photo acquisition rate! Very Happy
