Members of FOTR guided the El Dorado County survey crew from Loon Lake to the Little Sluice (and back) for a day of GPSing the trail (and setting up monuments for further ortho-photo rectifying). We are mapping the entire trail and tying the ground points to aerial photos.

It was a great day and I want to thank Friends of the Rubicon folks for stepping up to the plate to get the job done --- again! Del-
