One last sunset at Pinto Valley I'm going to boil water for supper on this side of the tent, to shelter my gas flame from the windThumbnailsCliff Canyon Peaks hike, Mojave National Preserve, hiking routeI'm going to boil water for supper on this side of the tent, to shelter my gas flame from the windThumbnailsCliff Canyon Peaks hike, Mojave National Preserve, hiking routeI'm going to boil water for supper on this side of the tent, to shelter my gas flame from the windThumbnailsCliff Canyon Peaks hike, Mojave National Preserve, hiking routeI'm going to boil water for supper on this side of the tent, to shelter my gas flame from the windThumbnailsCliff Canyon Peaks hike, Mojave National Preserve, hiking routeI'm going to boil water for supper on this side of the tent, to shelter my gas flame from the windThumbnailsCliff Canyon Peaks hike, Mojave National Preserve, hiking route

Despite the clear skies, it's incredibly windy tonight (again). At this point, the tent is trying to lift off and blow away. The big rocks I placed in the tent are keeping it down, but they're starting to wear through the tent fabric. I hope I can get enough sleep inside the noisy tent.

I'm tired, so I manage to fall asleep easily around 23h30, despite my tent flapping in the gusty winds, but I keep waking up during the night for extended periods of time.
