He didn't notice that he left his hiking pole until a couple of miles back up/down the trail back to the trailhead. He had goine in and out on the green track shown on the topo map. So the next Tuesday, Don and SuzanneT decide to take the blue track back into the area to try to find the hiking pole. At last, a hike with a real mission! This time, Don remembered his camera but he left the battery at home on the charger. So SuzanneT is to be credited with the pics.
