Monday hike in the mountains

Posted By Ridge Line on 8/26/2009 at 1:22 AM

Just about did myself in. Went for the last corner late, didn't get back the to the truck until after dark. It's not good to be in the mountains in new territory hiking in the dark. One of the downsides of solo surveying, no buddy system.

It was a good day(night) though as I found the corners where the GLO notes said they were in 1916 and 1929.
