I think that lake deserves a name. Yosegrant Lake? Ambiguous Boundary Lake?
:)


Interesting, if you take a look at the HST Map in USA Topo mode, it shows a clear defined border line, but if you use the World Topo mode, there are two border lines, leaving this lake in a white zone (unclaimed) zone all to itself. :confused:

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

The Yosemite Resource Manager wrote, that the info has been forwarded to Yosemite's GIS specialist, they hope to have us an answer by the end of the week.

2017 meet-up site?


Highly unlikely Russ, but if it is on the Emigrant side then maybe, if on the Yosemite side then no. :lol:

Check this 1905 Map.http://texashistory.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metapth190515/m1/1/zoom/ Key is the description of the boundary on the nw corner of the map. "Divide Between Cherry Creek and Eleanor and Falls Creeks" Therefore the lake is not in Yosemite and any other boundary is probably based on the 1956 usgs map error.

Interesting Mike, but even though it was establish by Congress, that was back in 1905, wonder how many times that lake has changed sides by more present (last few decades) surveyors, and then by current GIS people. Looking forward to see what Yosemite's GIS person comes up with, and then what the Emigrant Wilderness Manager has to says.

Already have an unnamed lake up Goodale Canyon, across the ridge from Taboose Pass waiting for that Russ, a fine small lake with a beautiful fluted unnamed peak behind it, but that process is not happening for a few more years.
