    You forgot to mention Laurel Falls in the dark (oh those stairs) & Damascus in the rain, and Max Patch and Wayah Bald!

    I imagine instinct and an acute sense of smell play into this. Like taking a dog for a walk and they stop and pee every 50 yards....they'll never get lost or not be able to find their way home.
