Thanks for the links, I knew they were in the latest issue.

I would say the total view from the tip of the MDA is better than the one at Fern canyon but the views down into longer parts of the canyon may be better there.  Of course one can walk to the tip and then walk up the canyon rim and check it all out!   :icon_lol:
