A word of caution for our hikers who might be traveling in the forest after dark: We have found that ONLY incandescent and white LED flashlights render blaze colors correctly.

Red and blue LED flashlights render all colors as white or colorless. This could cause even experienced hikers to get confused and lose their way in the dark.
