Awoke at 7am from the Cochise campgrounds and was on the trail a little before 8am. Hiked up to the divide and then down to the western TH. Rested a bit here and had a few snacks before returning back. The uphill switchbacks going back had me sucking some serious wind but once I made it back to the divide it was all good the rest of the way back. From east to west and back up to the divide I had the whole trail to myself, passed 24 hikers the last 3 miles back! Perfect weather, great trail and amazing scenery made this a day very well spent!
