    Default 2018-06-09: Crystal Mountain TH to gate, Ballard, Greer

    My plan was to look at clearing trees on the intro section of Crystal Mountain - but none needed to be cleared. Someone tended the task recently. On this odd, short section of trail I didn't expect to see anyone - but a couple groups of motorcycles were out.

    With Crystal a short visit I headed up Buckhorn Canyon to check out other new-to-me trails - Ballard & Greer were the first to come up. That was the rest of the day.

    It was a nice weather and relaxing day to be out!!





    Anyone know what these slash / refuse piles are from? Prior logging is my only thought...

    I'm not sure it's the same, but along the Mustang Trail in White Ranch Park there is a similar pile of wood, the ones there are old post and rails from cattle fences.

    DeLorme Street Atlas USA v7.0 - OLD, OLD, OLD but it's the same map program I've used for perhaps all maps at my web site.

    GPS data used to be downloaded directly into WayPoint+ which would save the track log as a SA file. Now, because WP+ does not talk to the current GPS (old was Garmin III and III+, current is V) I download into MapSource, save the track as a text file, open the text file and run a macro to convert the text into bare lat/lon trackpoints for WP+, open with WP+, save out as a SA file and then open with Street Atlas for screen grabs.
