Hmmm, it doesn't ring any bells, but I'm wondering if it is where the Dry Ridge trail meets the Grouse Point trail?  The trees don't look quite what I remember, but......

If that isn't it, maybe you can give another hint......

Donovan, what is the answer to the "how many Surprise Lakes" question?

Not the Grouse Point/ Dry Ridge Trails junction. Here is another clue: White Iris.

Well, I guess I'm dense on Tuesdays.... 🙂  White Iris doesn't help, but once I know where it is, I'll probably have a "Homer" moment - DOH!

One of the trails is known for it's abundance of White Iris flowers that grace it's path.

OK, so I did a little searching, and I'll guess it is the 502-A trail where it meets the 502 trail (Old Baldy)?

You are correct. The double tree in the picture had a rock stuck in it at the junction of 502 & 502-A.  Not sure who placed it there, but it was interesting enough for me to take a picture of it.

So it is now your turn to stump us.

I've only done Old Baldy once, and I can't say I remember that junction.  I do remember one trail junction which I think was the Old Bissell trail.  I'll do some noodling and post in a while.

That was an interesting tidbit that I didn't know about the iris.

OK, I found one.  This one is a current district trail in Bull of the Woods wilderness.

Is that a tin roof on an old outhouse in the lower righthand corner?

Why yes, I think it is!  I hadn't even noticed it before...

If it is an outhouse , then it must be the Bull of the Woods lookout on the 550.

You are correct....I should have chosen more carefully!

Your turn!

I moved the new postings to a new topic since there appears to be a bug in the "latest forum posts" that won't show up long topics unless you are logged in.
