Quasimo’s instructions as to the next waypoint on our desert crossing were somewhat vague. We were to direct our march towards the first mountain peak in a grouping of three until a single larger one came into view in the west.
It was easy enough to set our course in the dying light before setting out, but we were left wondering how we could detect the second in the dark. We may have to consider walking in the daylight hours.
We were able to hike for a couple of hours on the bedrock before it was subsumed again by the desert sands.
Then our pace greatly slowed. Whereas we had been quite talkative before, we fell silent with the exertion.
