   +-------------------------------------------------+
   |            Hydra Hike & Bike Trail              |
   | Bench Rest                              .5 mile |
   | #3 Restroom & Water                   1.25 mile |
   | Pegasus N. Campground & #2 Restroom    2.5 mile |
   | Visitor Center and Water              3.25 mile |
   | Observation Point                     3.25 mile |
   +-------------------------------------------------+
   the numbers are:  0.5  3  1.25  2  2.5  3.25  3.25

   the math is:  2 + (2.5 / (3.25 - (3.25 - 1.25)) * 0.5) = 3

   more math:  (3.25 + 3.25 - 2.5^2 + 1.25) / 0.5 = 3

   more math:  sqrt(3.25 + 3.25 + 2 * 1.25)! / (2.5 - 0.5) = 3
      
   more math:  (2.5 / 1.25 + 3.25 / 3.25) * 2 * 0.5 = 3

   rsPhiEval:  
      (3 - 2) * (0.5 + sqrt(1.25)) * ((2.5 / 1.25) - (3.25 / 3.25)) = Phi
      * Phi is the golden ratio and it approximates 1.61803399
