With almost no wind, the sky is a quiet, blinding black from dusk until the full moon rises later. A few birds chatter, then go to sleep; a few insects flit against my tent like rain sprinkles until the night gets chillier.

It's still sweater weather. Looking forward to a great sleep, and I don't think I'll sleep cold again tonight.
