I'm hiking briskly cross-country in the hope of crossing before dark the Cottonwood Canyon Road that will lead me to my tent To my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tentThumbnailsAfter almost an hour of cross-country, I cross the old road at dusk and realize that I've overshot my campsite by about a mileTo my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tentThumbnailsAfter almost an hour of cross-country, I cross the old road at dusk and realize that I've overshot my campsite by about a mileTo my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tentThumbnailsAfter almost an hour of cross-country, I cross the old road at dusk and realize that I've overshot my campsite by about a mileTo my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tentThumbnailsAfter almost an hour of cross-country, I cross the old road at dusk and realize that I've overshot my campsite by about a mileTo my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tentThumbnailsAfter almost an hour of cross-country, I cross the old road at dusk and realize that I've overshot my campsite by about a mile

I'm really enjoying the sunset over Cima Dome in the distance, but am a bit nervous about not knowing my precise location, even though I know I'm not too far from my tent.

My cross-country hike will get a lot slower if it gets dark because it will be harder to avoid the spiky and thorny bushes. I'm already getting some good scratches on my legs as my hiking speed increases and I get a bit careless.
