How come it always says that the lowest point in BIBE is 1,850'? At the east end of the park, downstream from Boquillas Canyon the elevation is as low as 1,700'. Just because it is hard to get to doesn't mean it doesn't exist. And btw, is Emory 7,825'; 7,832' or 7,835??
2006 BIBE FACT SHEET... Just the facts maam.
I think its 7825. here is a photo of my GPS unit from a hike up to the peak. however I did not officially complete the hike as I did not climb the last 25 ft to the top. plus I guess it has a lot to do on where you hold the GPS unit to get your reading.James
So you're saying that a GPS does not have a topography data base built into it correlated to location but provides an estimated elevation based on a mathmatical model (approximation) of Earth's surface?
To the extent I understand what you said, Great job!
