I miscalculated the duration of twilight, it got dark faster than I thought it would.  But I was saved by a substantial sliver of moon.

Normally walking down is faster than walking up, for me, but in this case there were several places where the deep grass hid the trail and not even moonlight could reveal it. In those places, I was doing a slow shuffle, rather than a brisk walk.

A highlight was to see the edge of the pine forest on the top of the range.

I intend to get there, next time, via the Tejas trail that starts in Dog Canyon and meets up with the McKittrick trail on the top of the range, in the forest.  I'll have to come back the same way I came up, of course, given the distances involved.
