In the video, between 5:45-6:00 minutes you are heading straight for the ridge between Panorama Point (upper left) and the West Fuji plateau (lower right). The upper Lone Tree Trail used to go up that Ridge. Now it's an old firebreak with a use path and portions of the old trail still intact. And if you look closely you can see the lower trail, which is maintained, descending West Fuji from the rock outcropping in the middle of the plateau and contouring around the west slope.
Unfortunately, I deleted my best wing shots of that location but I did find this one which I hope is of some value. Click for full res.
This is Bear Canyon. Grand Canyon would be the one over the ridge to the left. Not in the picture....
....And that's the Sam Merrill Trail to Echo Mtn. Then the Middle Merrill extending up the ridge above Echo.
Thanks for the correction. Lots to learn about local trails and terrain. I'm glad to know there is this interest and activity as well as volunteerism. If I can combat this persistent sinusitis maybe I'd like to start walking again then use Signal Hill which is a few miles from our house to start developing my legs once again. It would probably benefit my flying activity too.
Here is a short video of Dima and I dealing with a scree chute in Punchbowl Canyon. This gully is directly below the C-46 tail section. Parts of the plane wreck slid down this steep slope into the stream. Some large pieces remain half-buried in the rocks. One of these parts appears in the video. We think it might be a propeller blade, but are not certain.
