I pass a few coyote melons on the way back up Piute Canyon and arrive at my campsite just before total darkness
Great way to end the day! When I get back, the first thing I need to do is set up my tent, in the dark. The late-afternoon wind is gone and now it's super-quiet out here. An interesting sight is a jet-exhaust stream in the sky illuminated by moonlight.
Super tonight is Mountain House Chicken Teriyaki with Rice; I'm starved and eat it quickly. A couple of owls up on an adjacent hill protect me with their hoo-hooing before I get to sleep around midnight.
