A return to Cabin #6

Post by dbhguru » Fri Mar 12, 2010 1:10 pm

ENTS,

Yesterday, I returned to MTSF, visiting Cabin #6 and remeasuring the Cabin Pine. It stands in front of and a short distance down the hill from the cabin. I had measured it prior to the recent batch of snowstorms. The following image shows the crown of the pine.

. In the image, you can see three tops. The one on the left is the highest. It is somewhere between 154.0 and 155.0 feet. I am showing the height as 154.8 feet, which is my latest measurement. The sprig looks to the the lowest of the three. It is more distant. The middle spring is about 153 feet and the right most is slightly over 151. The image illustrtaes the value of the sine top - sine bottom method.
