I only went 13.9 miles today. 87 degrees. Wind SSE @ 7. That is a comfortable day enjoying the beautiful colors. Also enjoy the open sky at night too.
I get a great view of the sky. In Michigan we have dew settle on the tent at night, but here it is drier in the morning. I can put a tarp up if the dew will set. This is a photo of my bug bivy. The bottom is waterproof and the pole keeps the netting off your face. There is not much other room, beyond the mummy bag. I have a pocket for my glasses and flashlight I got this to keep the bugs off and out in the desert who knows what else may want to crawl over or in your sleeping bag (snakes, scorpions, and ?).
I love my riding days and look to find interesting and informative items to share.
