John Semrau racing the sunset on the return along Sourdough Ridge. The sun is just a few degrees above the horizon, and we have a mile or more left before reaching the thin trail down into the forest. It has dawned on us that finding that trail before dark is essential. We can hike the trail by headlamp all night, if need be, but finding it in the dark by our meager lights is iffy.
We did find it in the last few seconds of light, and we reached the car at 0100 the next morning, 20 hours after leaving it.
