    The most famous man who has first and last names juxtaposed. This happened while at the motor vehicle department. He filled in the lines last name first incorrectly and henceforth ..... Perl Charles. Glad I could clear things up... (like Chunk Master)

    Nice, thanks! Make that a three-fer, it also mentions Charles Christiansen (Trail 100).

    It's not just 1A, many trail markers to 1A and other trails point to the trail, not the trail itself. The arrows on trail pointer markers have worn out, so now those posts look like actual trail markers on the wrong trails. It only took me a few years to figure that one out!

    Good shot, blaklbl! All I have is a funky saddle shot.
