    Map and Elevation of Monday and Sunday respectively. Top of the World is very obvious and Long Canyon drop is as well.[/QUOTE]


    How do you capture this elevation data? Horizontal axis is time in min? That graph is awesome to show the challenge of the terrain. I've only seen the Garmin action camera (go pro like) with embedded telematics. It will overlay this type of data on your video. Bummer is batter life is only rated at ~45 min with all of its sensors running. Based on my experience with other battery powered tech, real world is likely ~30min.

    I think the x-axis must be distance (miles) on that chart. We spent a full day (8-ish hours) on the trail, so it can't be minutes.

    I'd agree with miles. About 40 miles per day is what we did on the two trail days.

    The GPX file contains not only the Lat/Long, but elevation and time stamps normally. The files open with the text editor and look like: <ele>2856.690</ele>. With time, elevation, and position, many details can be calculated. The above graph uses distance in miles as Jim and open_circuit have stated, the overall distance in the shot above was 44.7 miles. The trail maps with various colors posted were coded per moving segment. I use a free program, GPS Track Editor, for that which allow coloration based on segment, elevation, speed, etc. Basically any GPX could be brought into a spreadsheet to parse and graph the data.

    Miles, duh lol.

    That seems reasonable to do once you've got the GPX file. What kind of hardware do you use to capture the data? Is that done with a smart phone? Assuming google maps isn't going to cut it.

    I use a Magellan, many here on the forum use Garmin from what I have read. I have seen some apps for iPhone that are for hiking and biking, they might be adaptable to wheeling as well, but not sure if they actually log, or if they do, if it is to a common file structure.

    I had a dedicated vehicle GPS for awhile, but it was stolen out of the car several years ago and never replaced.
    Backcountry Navigator for Android seems to record tracks and waypoints to a GPX file. I'll have to play with that a bit to see how it works.

    Sorry for thread jacking, this has been a lingering issue for me. (route tracking)

    Back on topic though, these pics look awesome. Seems like there is plenty of space to play around. The wide angle Rose Garden Hill shot sure hides the boulders shown in the close up.

    I use my Garmin watches (Forerunner 405 or Fenix 2) or even an old Garmin car GPS (which had a hidden track record mode) to get GPX (or TCX) files.

    The Fenix 2 works great for all of my outdoor and multisport uses, and I recommend the Fenix series heartily. I will be testing the Amazfit Bip (~$60 GPS smartwatch) on some future outings as well.

    The hill look looks nearly vertical as you are approaching it. The wide photos certainly make it look less intimidating than the in person experience.

    This video gives some depth to angle as well as the rocks. The group went up and then back down, just click past the first parts to get to the hill. https://youtu.be/xzJIbfzbLNU

    There is a lot of room to play around, you are correct.

    As we thought, it starts getting a bit gnarly about 2/3 of the way up.
