gjt0102a.jpg (297637 bytes) different angle

Planted actual wreckage.  Was North of Highway 34, 6 east of FNL   9/98

 Looking South, notice the left (east) edge of the V-ravine in the middle, 1/2 mile north-east of the junkyard. Looking East now, same ravine with the V at the top.  On the north-east (top) edge of the ravine there's a junk pile.  Just east (above) the end of the gully is…
Parts of an airplane!  Here we're looking South and a little west, at the east end of the V-end of the gully.  Circling around a little… Now looking North-West, what used to be N3135J, a white C150 with red and blue trim.  Bonus points if you used binoculars to get the tail # :-) 

Planted beacon in a cool location, north of the west side of Loveland.  9/98

 Looking North.  The North-South road on the right is Shields, 1 west of US 287.  Just outside the picture to the north-west is a brand new subdivision. Closer in, looking North-NorthEast.  The planes are just west of the trees along the stream.
Over the brand new subdivision looking East.  From the ranch in the middle, just south-west (down and right) from the buildings is an orange dot.  That should be there both days, it's a Cub.  Possibly next to it is a white SuperCub. Looking West north-west again, beacon is under the wing of the yellow Cub.

Lost hiker with an orange tent (aka a 7x5 red tarp) 9/98.   2 North of the Poudre River, 3 due west of Grey Rock 

Looking North-West.  Notice the ravine just right of the middle of the strut.

 Now looking South-West, close in on the ravine, see the silver (actually orange) dot right on the fence line halfway between the ravine and the left (east) trees?

Looking North-East now, same ravine in the middle.  Where the ravine trails off on the upper (north) side, there's an East-West fence line… Looking North-East again, close-up of the ravine and orange tarp.  You see why we put out three tarps at each location at the Feb 2001 SAREX.
