My GPS leads me around a bend toward Coyote Spring; I'm at the lowest elevation of today's trip, 4430 feet

Still on Pachalka Spring Road, but getting close to the pavement of Excelsior Mine Road, I stop for a Clif-bar break
I got up too early today and my energy is already low! Even though I've been heading in a downhill direction, I've used plenty of energy walking the 10-ton bike, so this is not one of those effortless downhills that a bicyclist experiences on paved roads.
