    You were in my regular stomping grounds in Citico-Slickrock. Tipi Walter is more useful than any map you'll find. (Hopefully his dog Shunka was OK. His 16 years were catching up with him this Summer.) It sounds like you missed the turn down Stiff Knee. That was some detour you had into Alcoa land!
    Thanks for sharing!

    Getting turned around and bushwackin' always is an adventure. Feels so good to work your way out of trouble.....
