After a relaxing campfire and supper, I crawl back into the tent to get some sleep. It's a chilly night again, but without the icy feel of the nights that I spent higher up in the mountains.

It's ironic to have so much noise inside (from the wind) in such an otherwise quiet place!

Again, the strong winds die down around midnight, to my relief, and I sleep fairly well.
