    I'd go the other way myself - especially if Lafayette is in the clouds in the AM as it often is and will often burn off by the PM.

    The topic comes up from time-to-time, but nobody has made a case that they would keep it relevant, updated, and correct (in a generally agreed-to-by-everybody way).

    Did they ask where you were going (Canada) or where you'd been (USA)? And what did you tell them?

    If you measured the center of the trail with a 12" ruler, you'd get one distance. If you walked behind yourself measuring with a yardstick, you'd get a different number. Same with the time samples...
