C'mon guys, NRA still needs volunteers for the following sites:

National Forest, approximately 40 miles southeast of Monterey, CA. The shortest route to this peak is using the Santa Lucia trail from the Memorial Park. This trail is 6.2 miles one way, with roughly 4000' of elevation gain. The GPS location for this site is (-121.420807, 36.146082).
* Site # 5: Smith Mountain: Located within the Los Padres National Forest, approximately 15 miles southwest of Coalinga, CA. This site is at the end of the Smith Mountain Lookout road (which is gated). The elevation is approximately 3600', and no hiking trails are apparent. Access may require permission from the landowner who gates the Smith Mountain Lookout road. The GPS location for this site is (-120.595931, 36.078882).
* Site #6: Anderson Peak Observatory: Located off of Highway 1 (just south of Big Sur/Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park), on a private road called Coastal Ridge Road. This road is behind the Ventana Inn. The road is vehicular(for those with permits) and hiking only, no biking or horses. It is 13.5 miles from the beginning of Coastal Ridge Road to the Anderson Peak Observatory. The site itself is likely gated and locked up, so photographic evidence of any trash/contaminants would be needed in lieu of samples. GPS location of this site is (-121.642897, 36.180874).

We've gotta have someone close by.
