On December 12, 2010, I participated in a hike to the Valley of the Moon sponsored by the Take a Hike group on

I'd hiked there several times before, never taking exactly the same route. The area is crisscrossed with dirt roads and trails.

After the hike, I surveyed a small part of Old Highway 80 and Interstate 8, mostly for alignment. Some of the data in the interchange appears to be erroneous.
