Wow, great idea! Thanks for sharing. This is particularly timely for me, because I lost one of mine in the leaves just last month at Neo's annual fall hang at Meriwether Lewis National Monument in Tennessee. I've got another AT section hike this weekend and I might do what you did, or just use the last of some phosphorescent orange spray paint I have sitting in the garage.
Anyway, thanks for the idea! I also like the idea of reflective string someone mentioned. Always lots of good ideas on HFs to choose from.
