We visited Big Bend again during Christmas and one day I had to myself, I went into the park to walk the Burro Mesa pouroff trail. I pretty much had it to myself. It was quiet, I only heard one bird singing. My tinnitus is bad enough that it’s all I could hear besides the bird. I found an app for my phone that measures decibels, I opened it and the volume level was at 28 decibels.
A weathered wood and corrugated metal fence in Bodie, California. I find it interesting that at high altitudes, wood doesn’t weather to gray.
Bodie is a former gold mining town that has been preserved as a state park.
This one is going nowhere fast.
