It took about 2 hours to climb to this location.  Elevation is about 3000 feet above sea level.

I'm sorry to report that the flag disapeared about 3 weeks later.  I don't believe anyone pulled it up and tossed it.  My thought are that a very strong gust of wind pulled the 2' section out of the ground and the whole thing flew off the side into the valley below.  I intend to replace it when I can figure out a better way to secure the pole deep into the ground.
