Jan. 9

Finished driving the stakes into the cold heart of the lake to guide us through the dark. Garlic optional. Main trail marked and the station trail as well. The junction is in approximately the same location along the main trail marked with a regular trail marker, station marker and one of the new round red on a wire types. My trail branches here as well straight over to my place as per usual and is unmarked. Evil Clay has the spruce bow markers “branching” (evergreen humor) into Copelands bay near the narrows and also straight west out of Copelands to the main trail on the south side of the big island…………………nice Clay
