    A dead tree in the forest? OK. Perhaps you can pin this on a map; or at least post the coordinates.

    The original tip was edited, it pointed to the Kern river and a still snowed in pass (sherman).

    Well,
    I got off work last night at 6:00 and headed up through the Kern River Canyon to Lake Isabella, up through Kernville, and then onto Sherman Pass Road. I rode up Sherman Pass to the locked gate at @ 6,000 feet. Forest route 22s12 branched off to the south at the gate. I took 22s12 across 3 single lane bridges and not sure how many miles in. The view from the picture tag never lined up, but plenty of burnt trees. I headed back over to Sherman Pass Rd and never could find the view of the tag. I snapped a few pictures and headed back down. I really thought I would be able to find it. I'll let someone else figure it out I guess.

    At least a tree stump in front of some mountains wasn’t your ‘idea’ for a good tag.

    Weird, the gates weren't locked(2 total) when I went up. It's right off 22s05(Sherman pass Road), a few miles past where you had to turn around. Maybe they closed it due to the increased traffic and still having 4' of snow at the summit.
    I have the coordinates to share, but it may be a couple weeks until the gates are reopened. 35.985064, -118.383852.

    I'll make sure the next one is a starbucks a few miles off a major highway for you.

    I figured you were beyond that gate viewing your picture with Sherman Pass in the background. It won't be me that goes back.

    So i'll let you guys be the judge of this, since this tag sits so long maybe we can bend the rules a bit. Was up in the area & actually rode to the Trail of 100 giants, hadn't been there since i was 13yo with the YMCA, on my way back down the dim light bulb went off in my head about this thread & 100 giants being the tag. That basically happened at the T to turn left after Johnsondale to go up to the 100 giants.
    Sign just past johnsondale

    I say it's good. Any kind of effort at this point to actually move this thing along should be welcomed, especially if its sat for soooooooo long. I think in this case it's close enough. :thumb
