I'm hiking briskly cross-country in the hope of crossing before dark the Cottonwood Canyon Road that will lead me to my tent
Date: April 29, 2008, 19h17
And finally—ta da—here we are, the road to Coyote Springs
Actually, my climbing isn't completely over for the day, but I do get to leave traffic and pavement now. The road to Coyote Springs rises another 200 feet over about three miles to my campsite at the base of the mountains ahead.
