After hiking down the wash for 1/2 hour, I exit the Wilderness boundary and start walking down the south fork of Globe Mine Road

After about two miles, I reach the "shortcut" from the south fork of Globe Mine Road to the middle fork
I turn left here on this short 1/3-mile-long connector "road." I'm almost in the rolling foothills of the Providence Mountains and the Mid Hills now, roughly 900 feet above Kelso Depot at about 3000 feet elevation.
