BARS::Hiking Trail Sign on Top of Pikes Peak in Colorado

This hiking trail sign was found on top of Pikes Peak (elev. 14,100 feet) in Colorado.

The hiking trail sign says...

   +------------------------+
   |        Barr Trail      |
   | Timberline Shelter   3 |
   | Barr Camp            6 |
   | Manitou Springs     13 |
   +------------------------+
   the numbers are:  3  6  13

   the math is:  ceil(13 / 6) = 3

   observe...
      13 / 6 = 2.167
      ceil(2.167) = 3

   off-by-one math:  3! + 6 = 13 - 1

   off-by-one hexadecimal math:  3 * 6 + 1 = 1316

   observe...
      hexadecimal 13 has 1-unit of 16 plus 3 ones to equal 19
