comment Dealing with wildlife in the desert of California/Nevada in general and in the White Mountains in particular
@gerrit In the White Mountains? They may look like large bushes to you New Englanders, but out here we call them trees... I will update the post.

comment GPS topo map downloads
Welcome to The Great Outdoors S.E.! Thanks for the answer, but we normally discourage such short answers with just a link. Have you used these maps? For what areas? Have you used others? If so how do maps from this site compare? Are they complete for a region or the whole world? Have you found any problems with them? Or whatever else you might be able to share.

@DonBranson I imagine you don't have/use evaporitive coolers there. Here in AZ most homes have them and they are more than sufficient except for monsoon season July and August.

@gerrit I would agree with tundra hiking. Only been a couple of times and bow to your experience. But I Mentioned winter in this region. The white mountains will take it out of you any time of the year.

This can happen at ANY temp in this region. It is actually more common than you think in the winter months because "It's cool out."

comment What are the key sites to see on a short trip through Oregon?
This question does include quite a bit of information that is not important to the question, and I think that, and that it's asking for a list, might be the reasons people are voting to close. If you trimmed it to "I will be spending a couple days driving along this part of Oregon, what are the major natural attractions I could stop at." But then it might be more suited to travel or no where as it is asking for a list. - Not sure how to fix it.

comment Difference between Franz Josef and Fox glaciers
@LBell I think it belongs here if the question about the walks is removed. The walks are guided tours, but the other questions are about specific recreation locations and I think they would be appropriate.
