    Apex Quiz

    From the "you learn something new every day" file.
    I've been riding Apex for 18 years or so, and never realized:
    You can see 2 relatively famous structures from this relatively little used trail on Apex (not Bonanza). Can you guess the structures and the portion of trail?
    I have discovered over the years that it is nice to slow down and look/see/enjoy sometimes too, rather than always pushing yourself so hard!

    You must know this from all the time you spend doing XC climbs on the side trails.

    Yeah, I'm sure that's it.

    Oops - didn't think about those other "relatively famous" structures. Think not in an easterly direction from Apex.
    And it's not the alpine slide or the dinosaur lots, nOOb.

    Good job WKD-RDR! The Cabrini Shrine is one of 'em (not my preferred religion though!). You are just a little off on the trail.
    It is basically from towards the top of Pick - N - Sledge. If you head west-ish on P-N-S from the "summit", as you are descending towards Sluicebox.
    This is the same place you can see the other structure from. I actually spotted it with some binoculars, but once I knew it was there, you can kinda recognize it with the bare eye.
    Any other guesses for the 2nd structure?

    That's it - the Woody Allen "Sleeper" house.
    Good job - now back to your regularly scheduled interweb cage match fighting...
