Route: Red Hill Trail

A warm afternoon, I went for a jog up the Red Hill Trail. Perhaps a combination of the warm weather, as well as being tired from lots of driving the day before, I was dragging as I worked my way uphill.

Climbing the tower, I had decent views in all directions. After waiting a bit, the sunset commenced and was good.

I was able to leave my headlamp in my pack for the jog down, though I did end up walking the last bit due to the darkness and rocky footing.
