Jake is on the Appalachian Trial hiking. He hikes 8 miles due north and then turns and hikes an additional 10 miles at a bearing of N 67°W at which point he has reached a vista, eats lunch, and decides to bushwhack directly back to the trailhead. How far is he now from the trailhead? What bearing must he take to get back to the trailhead?
