Thank you, PD. The last, northern section of the Highline Trail takes a few hours to complete. As the day was lengthening I had to decide whether I could complete the more technical parts of that trail before it got dark. I could have descended to pavement earlier, and left the last section of the trail unfinished, but it's one of my favorite rides. I decided I had enough time, so I completed the last section, and reached less technical, fire roads before the light departed.
