Bajada - Mule Deer - Mesquite - Waddell - Ford - Willow - Mesquite - Goat Camp - Bajada

Nice and cool out all day. People were everywhere, except for Goat Camp (probably because it was late). I kept a solid pace throughout, and generally only stopped for a handful of pictures and yielding. At the spur trail for Barry Goldwater Peak, I had a sit for about 10 minutes to eat some crackers. My energy was running mega low thanks to not bringing enough food. I would have been in better shape if it wasn't for my impromptu swing around Willow and the upper section of Mesquite.

I decided to go up Ford simply because I can't remember the last time I did. If I had to do a loop of this sort again on my own accord, it'll definitely be clockwise. The constant up of counter isn't so much strenuous as much as it is a nuisance. I'd rather get it all taken care of in the first 3 miles of Goat Camp.

Parking the car near the end of Goat Camp worked out beautifully. It's nice to get the flat sections of Mule Deer, Mesquite, and Waddell out of the way first so you don't have to have that death-march when you're tired.

So long, 2012! 411.49 miles :y:
