With sunset at Mail Spring comes a bit of relief from the day's heat, followed by thousands of stars in a moonless sky
After dark, I make Backpacker's Pantry just-add-boiling-water Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry, yummy. My hot drinking water eventually cools down to a more drinkable temperature. Quiet except for a burst of noise that sounds like an owl catching a rodent and a few gusts of wind.
