Route Scout GPS Route Recorded on Route Scout View
Late afternoon hike to get the blood flowing. It was a fairly cool day. A fair number of people were out and about. A couple started just ahead of me. They were a little faster than I was, but they stopped periodically and I ended up staying close. Annoyingly they were carrying a radio and were blasting a football game loudly. About 2/3 of the way up the hill they stopped to rest and I passed them. After that I picked up the pace and I was motivated to stay far enough ahead of them so I wouldn't have to hear their radio.

I took the connecting trail down to the Gila Trail for the return. Happily I saw (and heard) nobody at all the back. I celebrated with a selfie at dusk.

Update: This time there were only a couple of elevation drop outs in the RS GPS track. Last time I was listening to podcasts during the hike which may have contributed to the GPS elevation issue, and this time I didn't. Or maybe the elevation drop outs could be when I took pictures with my phone.
