After dispensing with the barbed-wire booby trap, Collette and I backtracked to the point where we'd split with the beaten path. We hadn't passed any "no trespassing" signs when we took the other line. It's possible the telephone pole was placed here by the same person who rigged the barbed wire. Dissuading travelers from a route with a well-placed telephone pole is effective and straightforward. Rigging up barbed wire is cowardice. We've circled the spot where the barbed wire trap was laid.
