No, it's not shorter. The key takeaway is that it was a route. see belowIs that a shorter route?
If they were bent on hiking to the road, why didn't they take Sheep Canyon?
No mountaineering equipment required for Sheep Canyon, and, if I recall correctly, the maps show it actually reaching the road, in contrast to Willow, which ends in a terminal loop.
Beats me!... but there are loads of maps that don't show any trails in the area at all... including the official park map.Is there a map that shows Willow (the route taken by Lofgren and Henkel) as a trail linking Mormon Point to where the couple broke down? If so, someone screwed up.
The emergency carry vest sounds like a great idea. These can so easily carry a lot of gear, and still leave room for your daypack.I work in the SE woods and in my field vest is always water, food and a compass no matter how long I plan to be away from the truck. While where I work isn’t as remote or vast as places in the west, more than once I have come up on old half-covered abandoned hand dug wells and have known one timber cruiser who fell in one.
Yes it would, I have been looking for a warm weather vest that is not a fishing vest.The emergency carry vest sounds like a great idea. These can so easily carry a lot of gear, and still leave room for your daypack.
What make/model do you have?
This could be an interesting separate thread…’Show Me Yer Vest.”
If you want to carry alot of small stuff, you might look at a surveyor vest. Of course, you get hi-vis colours too.Yes it would, I have been looking for a warm weather vest that is not a fishing vest.
It’s a Columbia Silver Ridge vest
I wear a surveyor vest with more crap than I should carry in the factory too. I’ve looked into various “tactical”/Molle vests in the past as I wanted the flexibility of all the worlds pouches but I needed the hi-visibility ratings.If you want to carry alot of small stuff, you might look at a surveyor vest.

To carry alot of stuff, perhaps a verktygsväst.
At my job its a million and one small things to constantly have at hand, I normally use a surveyor vest.
Sorry, dunno its manufacturer, I like that its made primarily of nylon mesh.
At that, its still fairly warm wearing as its loaded, holds more tightly to your body than just your shirt normally will.
