It's 17h20, so I leave Tough Nut Mine and begin the hike back to camp, passing through the slot excavated into the hillside
I really wish I had enough time to continue just 1/2 mile further up the road to Tough Nut Spring to see possible water and anything else that might be there. But alas, time has run out.
I'm carrying a flashlight in my backpack in case I need it, but I really don't like hiking after dark in an area that I don't know, especially when there's no moonlight.
