I did Saddle yesterday. Today I was fiddling around on Google Earth trying to get the distance of the trail. Most of the trail is visible and using the path tool I came up with 4.24 miles from the Middle C parking lot. That's a vertical gain of about 3692'. And that one mile sign at the intersection of the trail that goes to the M is about 1.2 miles. I can gauge my distance by time and I knew it was longer than a mile or else I'm gettin' slower. Also the twin Saddle peaks are really close in elevation with a difference of only a few feet if that. I was told that the north one was higher but the topo has the mark on the south one so I did both just to be sure.
What is interesting on GE is it shows a small plane which evidently crashed on the low hill northeast of the parking lot. I wonder if it's still up there?

I noticed the plane in GE too, but it's definitely not crashed, it just got caught flying in the satellite imagery and wasn't removed.
