Unmarked Trail

August 25th, 2006


With a map in hand our family headed off the paved Garden of the Gods trail. We walked to several well-marked sites with great success, but eventually it became clear that we were no longer on the map. We wanted to be walking toward the car but we were walking away from it.

When we saw the main road and a picnic area with a map, we figured out our position. Our trail was not on the picnic area map and we were far from the car with two tired children. Fortunately, Mike’s parents saw us from their car and stopped. The drove Mike to our car and Mike picked up Jackie, Jennifer and I.

We checked the map and found our trail was not marked on it. Blame it on a poor map.
