Man, what a bummer... but good they're going to fix it.

I had this idea once of a giant brushed metal version of the CDT trail 
logo, about 10ft in diameter, and up off the ground about 10ft or so - 
like the CDT's biggest trail sign. It could be angled so that when the 
spring/fall sun is setting, it'd reflect on the trail. You'd be able to 
see that sucker for a mile down there - like a glowing beacon as the sun 
set. But, of course, that kind of thing would be a big target for metal 
junkies and whatever else. Maybe someday though...
