To my right is an old trailer on a hillside that I'm not expecting to see, so I start hiking cross-country toward my tent
According to my map, I must be a mile or so east of my tent. But with the endless forest of joshua trees between here and there, I can't tell exactly where I am. I wouldn't mind except that it will get dark shortly and there will be no moonlight this evening. I didn't bring my flashlight because I was sure that I wouldn't need it (I should know better).
I like this area and would love to go for a walk up to that old trailer to see what remains up there. But there's no time for that right now.
