OTOH, the first time I hiked from Laguna to Scissors Crossing, I turned on the
Oriflamme truck trail, and by the time I decided I really "had" goofed, time
constraints forced me to continue down canyon to S-2.  From there it was a 10
mile road walk to the crossing.  Sheesh, the sound of the hand slap against my
forehead was probably heard in Warner Springs.
