Took a 7 mile walk yesterday into a lake behind the house I have never been to.

Last two mile haven't been maintained in years, was slow and kinda like real work.
Dogs glad to be there!

Once I got there.....I didn't fish. Hard to believe. Was a bit nervous about the awful trail and....well I don't know. The 14 miles round trip was gonna wear on me too. So pretty much just turned around and headed out, following my flagging through some parts, trusting the dogs (better than GPS) in others.

On the way out I got narly leg cramps anytime I did anything but amble. Stepping over something, bending down, crawling through a couple places, even just standing still sometimes left me grimacing. Drank all my water and then drank from every spring and seep I saw ( lots of water on this trail). By the time I was down to the main trail I was pretty much over the cramps, but it certainly put a cramp in the whole trip. I had intended to fish the creek on way out, and make me some lunch, none of that happened, I just kept moving.

So the fish will have to wait till next time. Pictures are squished, something about my wife's computer does that to em. Might correct them tomorrow at work.

The old dog Duff.  He's a bit tuckered today.

Life is good. Not all trips have to be.

That's awesome!   Is it a natural lake or a reservoir?  (Looks natrual)

Nice pictures, Keith.  Even a day hike of 14 miles with a lighter pack is a good little jaunt if you haven’t been putting on those kinds of miles recently.  Hopefully the return trip was mostly downhill!  Yea, dogs know the way they came regardless of how they got there.  Our dog would walk us out back pretty much the way we walked in.

Good call trusting the dogs instead of the GPS. I'm a map and compass guy myself. I've used GPS a lot for work, so it's not a technophobe thing.

Gotta admit, 'though, the GPS did save my bacon one day. I was working in an area of bunchgrass steppe with no roads or trails and my Tatum (notebook/clipboard kinda thing) fell out of my back vest pocket while jogging from one site to the next, a distance of a couple of miles. That Tatum had three days of data in it, worth about a grand to me. I started trying to backtrack myself through the waist-high grass and realized it was futile. Then I remembered the "trackback" function on My Garmin. It took me within two feet of the Tatum about a mile back!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

Absolutely stunning Keith. You are so fortunate to have so close access to that kind of scenery. The closest I can get is Ken Burns National Parks series on PBS. Which by the way isn’t to bad. Thanks for sharing your hike!

Here is one of the same pics as above from my work computer. Not sure why the home PC squishes the pictures?

>>Then I remembered the "trackback" function on My Garmin.

Timm,

I haven't seen the true trackback feature on a Garmin since the late 90's.  My newer hand held units will re-navigate to the starting point with the shortest route, defeating the whole purpose of trackback.  The disappearance of this feature is why I've abandoned Garmin.  I've got to ask, what Garmin unit are you using?

Garmin 12XL--top line early aughts technology.

"Shortest route back" gets you killed in mountains or canyons. Really bad idea!

Yes, and a major annoyance any other time you would like to follow your exact trail back.

That's beautiful country to have behind your house. Funny how the the dogs seem to know where they're at.

I have two Garmin creations and both have trackback features. I don't carry em when I am on a trail. Little did I know this just barely met the definition. For things like horn hunting GPS is really useful.

@Smudge, the white faced dog....Kirby....is 6 or 7 now and is really amazing at getting me places and knowing the way back. I would have never made the lake if he hadn't led me through all the head high brush.  The old dog....Duff.... has always been a bit of a goof and has no sense of responsibility. He is as likely to be tracking a ground squirrel as finding the way home.

I may be talking to the wrong folks here but for those of you with Android smart phones there are apps you can download for a small one time fee that has better features than any Garmin I've owned... That's not saying a lot but it's by far cheaper than a newer GPS and is on the phone I use everyday. You can download topographical maps for the regions you plan to travel to and in my local wilderness and state owned land it shows you dash marks for the trails that have been there for a long time. You can turn tracking on with it so you can not only see where you came from but check your elevation gains and distance. They have more features than I really know how to use...

Out here, following the advice of a GPS or phone map app is another good way to get killed, especially in the winter. SAR folks call it "death by GPS." I've seen phone apps recommend a route that consisted almost entirely of unpaved mountain roads that aren't open in the winter, even 'though there were shorter routes using actual highways.

@Gunhippie  I like that expression...very fitting......unfortunately the end result is not funny.

I have the track back sort of feature on my 90’s Garmin gps. It tracks where you are so you can backtrack on your own. It also has man overboard feature so it constantly reroutes you to that exact point. It also has an average feature that as long as you stay still it will get average your location not only X and Y but also Z. If I remember it gets the location down to 10-12 decimal places. 

Those are great pictures and a very very nice day of hiking. I wish we had longer time of nice weather hiking.

Very nice pictures as usual, Keith; good to know your cramps didn't become a serious problem.  I wish the scenery here was half as nice as yours.

A topo map, a good compass, an altimeter, and knowing how to use them is still the necessary backup for our wonderful GPS instruments.
