Just over a week ago, Ray (@rayhuston) and I went up to Little Four Peaks. I wanted to show Ray a collection of heart-shaped stones in a hollowed out portion of a large rock, sitting on the ridge line. I had located this spot about five years ago and, wouldn't you believe it, I was unable to locate them :? Ray went back at a later date and found the collection, in a saddle, right where they should have been. It's just that I had led us to the wrong saddle.

Today was a beautiful day and I wanted to get out for some fresh air and exercise, so I challenged that darn collection of heart-shaped stones again. I followed Ray's instructions (kinda) and once again I got to the wrong saddle, but I could see, what looked like the right one about a hundred yards off. I headed cross country :scared: to that next saddle..... and there it was, the rock pocket full of heart-shaped stones. On my way to the parking area, I had stopped and picked up some polished black stones that I left as a token for future searchers.

There are no regularly traveled trails in this area, and "karens" are abundant but don't seem to lead anywhere special so getting from here to there is a bit of dumb luck and persistence.
