There are three out and back hills that go up to the Goldfield mountains that the route follows to get the climbing up to just shy of 1000'. A lot of folks turned around before the top to stay with the pack. I had no pretensions of holding the pack at this point so I climbed them all.
Yours truly in front of Usery Mountain
In the end, they were still just setting up breakfast when I got there. I sat for a minute under one of the heaters and had a breakfast burrito. Then I stuffed a cinamon roll in my jersey pocket and headed home so my wife could get her day started. I guess I am not much of Socializer.
