It's a bit cloudy this morning up on Gold Valley Road
The nice thing about this is that I didn't wake up baking in my tent from hot morning sun, like I do on so many desert-camping mornings.
The breeze up here in the mountains is cool and there's an occasional gust of wind. that I occasionally have to put on my sweater, but whenever the sun peers brightly through gaps in the clouds, I begin to overheat and have to take it off.
I slept really well last night in the cool air and silence. It was near total darkness with no moon in the sky. I neither saw nor heard any wildlife, except for a few lizards on the ground. There don't seem to be any birds around here.
The only real noise was the wind. Sometimes I could hear gusts of it coming from miles away, which sometimes never arrived at my location. At other moments, those gusts did arrive, and the tent got blown around a bit making it quite noisy inside on occasion.
