Arrived at approximately 8:45 AM. started up the trail at that time. We ended up going a little slower than "power walking" speed simply because this trail was a lot more difficult for me (lots of hazards in the trail). finished the round trip back at the trail head at noon. A note on the photos: ignore the displayed date. the camera reset its date to 01/01/2004. here is the youtube video of specific areas along the trail: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZCHrrTWQfA

here is the link for the course (including elevation guide): http://ridewithgps.com/routes/313811. this was for the El Tour De Mesa bike ride. I completed this ride with a riding partner who is also my regular tandem partner. we used a Ventana El Conquistador tandem Mountain Bike outfitted with Hookworm Urban Explorer tires. total gross weight of the bike and riders was 560 lbs.the last 6 miles of the course included a 3.7 mile 2% grade climb which accounted for 80% of the AEG for this run. I wish I had photos or even a video to link. still, not too shabby for a blind stoker and a 65 pound tandem mountain bike. :y:

my first hike since going totally blind. did pretty well.
followed Tortoise Hiker using sound (sleigh bells clipped to his ankles).
Also did some fingernail hiking (I do love to live a little on the edge).
looking forward to more hikes.
posted some pics taken by Tortoise Hiker.
