Perhaps THE coolest thing about camping out in a place like Chaco Canyon is the night sky. See the moon? (Duh.) See Orion to the left?
Stunning as the view was, we were even more aware of the wind. And the afternoon/overnight airflow was termed “breezy” here, and expected to become “windy” on Sunday.
Cleverly, I had brought canned turkey chili (thank you, TJs) that was edible cold, for our evening meal; I don’t have the stove skills to work around that much wind. One couple had nosed their pickup into the wind and had their stove fired up in the bed of the truck just under the back cover. The flame was still wild.
