Sunset haze drifts over the Ivanpah Mountains and the Clark Mountain Range beyond
I hope to make it over to the Clark Mountain area next week. For now I'll enjoy the sunset and perfect evening temperature from inside my tent, screened off from the flies and moths.
Supper is Backpacker's Pantry Jamaican BBQ Chicken and Rice. The bit of spice is nice, but overall rather bland in flavour; too much taste of rehydrated vegetables. It's OK, but I can do better, I'll try not to buy this one again.
I am treated to soothing breezes from time to time throughout the evening. High above these hills, phantom winds howl eerily, heard clearly, but usually not felt.
I'm exhausted from the heat of the last couple of days and today's climb of almost 3500 feet. I fall asleep before 23h, a rarity for me.
