Observations and Notes

My buddy and I were able to get back to this one on Sunday 23 Dec 2018. It was a bit of a chore. Attached are three photos. The east end is still posted No Trespassing (even though no gates were closed). We were able to come in from the west and north freely without any signage, and had I not been driving a minivan, probably could have driven all the way to the arrow. As it was, we hiked about three miles each way.
