 Quandary - East Ridge  

Today we hiked Quandary Peak. We left Vail around 4:30 am., and arrived at the trailhead around 5:30 am. I used two GPS apps on my Sprint Replenish Smartphone to see which one worked best, My Tracks and GPS Essentials. I like My Tracks except for the fact that the elevation accuracy was way off, until I changed the settings to imperial. Both apps work great with my phone. Unfortunately, my info on GPS Essentials got a little skewed because I didn't figure out how to stop the record on the track, and therefore leaving Quandary in the car was recorded to the Highway.
