That's right Mark, there's Yosemite boundries all around Hoover, and while it's a crap shoot if a ranger is actually in that trail segment, the repercussions of violation are intense. But Hoover extends quite a way past Peeler Lake to the North. Word to the wise: check with the ranger station about the distinctions.
Thanks for the tip Ken.
And, Josh, that's a Tibetan sash/bag. I picked it up during the Dalai Lama's visit in the LBC, and wanted to see if it's useful in lieu of hip belt pouches or cargo pant pockets. I usually have neither. I like its personality too... Now if only I had some green shoes ::grin::
