This is only part of the trail that we took to find Saddle Skirt. The red "X" is where the Saddle Skirt site is located on old TOPO maps, the "X" in purple is where my garmin software set the Saddle Skirt camp is located. Either way if there was a camp in any of these locations we didn't find it.
A waterfall just before entering Dough Flat.
Other water flowing.
Me, around 9:00AM on Saturday, February 20, 2010.
Water was flowing from every stream in the area.
That's me checking out the area just past Dough Flat.
A fallen Oil Rig off the trail past Squaw Flat.
Again the fallen Oil Rig.
A close up of the area.
This metal pipe was located under where the Oil Rig would have been sitting. Sulfur water pours out from the pipe. We could smell the sulfur as we walked by.
Some tank in the middle of nowhere.
My pack on the Pole. I call this place "View Poll" because the pole is on top of a mountain looking down towards the Earth below.
Eric Palmer at the pole.
The view from the pole.
Can you read this? Probably not, the fires a few years back burned this sign to an unreadable state.
Me and the sign. I have a picture of this sign from 2002, it looks much better. However, the trail to Ant Camp states that it is 2 miles, this is a big bunch of shit. I estimate that the trail to Ant Camp is more than 3 miles away.
A great view of Ant camp and all the extras.
Pots, pans, picknick table, beds, what else could possibly want at a remote campsite, oh also Horse shoes.
