After sunset I head up to the campground and grab my favorite campsite.
There were only three other campsites occupied, and no one was near me.
Considering all of the other campsites during the trip, this area was crowded.
I had some hot and spicy noodles, which helps open the sinuses and drain the dust.
Then the stars came out.
This was the same campsite where I shot this photo in 2011 that made it on the front page rotation for a bit.
I missed having my son with me this time.
Without a fire and with the Milky Way in another location I didn't try to recreate the shot.
It was a nice night. The trails today wore me out, so I slept well.
