    A beautiful place. You have the idea, but the routes or trails around it, or just the waypoint you can attach as a file and then other folks can just click on the attachment and go to town with whatever they use.

    Here is your spot in Capital Reef Nat Park saved as a Waypoint in a .gpx and attached.

    Philspace, what/how did you convert Boneys lat-long to that location??

    I can use/save locations that I have been to, but have never figured out how to get from a set of coordinates to a position on a map, without having to move across the map until I got to the point. The slow and unscientific method.

    I can't find my tracks!:cry


    Hey pumper:

    In Mapsource, just copy the location from this thread, select "edit-> new waypoint" and the paste the location into the location box.

    You can probably put the same location info into google maps or google earth too, tho I haven't tried it.
