Visit narrative:
We were bumped by the helicopter from ‘The Knob’ to South Quirk, where we landed on a hiking trail in the middle of a grassy clearing on the top of the ridge. The station is located toward the north end of the clearing, on the eroded dirt bike path. The alternate location is straight downhill from Loc.1 We got picked up at the same location as drop-off and returned to the Elbow basecamp.
