comment Cycling in Ontario — do I need to worry about permission to access logging roads?
It's not really cycling specific, is it? I would assume it is the same for any non-motorised traffic access. I actually started writing it on Travel.SE first. It fits on all three of those. Let's see if I get answers here. If not, I might flag for migration.

comment How to stay hydrated with minimum water usage
@Wills Warm air contains a lot more water than cold air. 100% RH at -20°C is 6.4 * 10^-4 g/m³. 100% RH at +20°C is 1.5 * 10^-2 g/m³ — around 20x times more. That's why you can see your breath when it's cold outside, even if it's try — the humidity is too much for the air to contain.

@OlinLathrop True that. I've recently spent a week in a desert for the first time (ironically with cloudy, windy, 5°C drizzle, in the Chihuahuan desert) but I don't understand how backpacking trips are possible — carrying 20 litre of water per person for a 4 day trip?!

100% humidity is not rare at all in winter, but 100% humidity in winter is still quite dry. Any time you're walking through fog you're walking through 100% humidity.

comment How to stay hydrated with minimum water usage
I've done 10-hour hikes through rainy weather at 5°C where I didn't drink more than 1 litre. But during those hikes I passed by potable water probably 6 times per hour, so I never had to worry about running out of water.

comment From an outdoor recreation point of view, does it matter who manages a national monument?
As for preservation and native people; I know that in Canada they established National park and preserve for a protected area where aboriginal people retain grandfathered "natural" rights. But that's relatively recent, and I don't know if the USA has something equivalent (would be a different question and maybe not a great fit on Outdoors.SE).

Do you have any sources that confirm this?

10% is most definitely noticeable.
