Walking in the dark on a relatively deserted road (the road to the restrooms at the campground) can be a little hair raising and a little amazing at the same time.
Every sound creates a reaction in your entire body. Sometimes the footsteps are hard to make out and the hair on my neck stands up. Now once I've made it and am taking care of business a scorpion runs proudly past my feet.
Glad he looked like he was on a mission. Now the time comes to walk back and there's howling in the distant darkness... Fear not, I tell myself, you have a flashlight that's dying and a phone with 2% battery. You'll be safe and if not I'm sure there are worse ways to die.
Note to self: Maybe consider a few different tools for the next journey in the dark.
UPDATE: Made it back safely minus maybe a mini heart attack when the unidentified animal ran across the road in from of me about the same time another one up in the tree dropped something just behind me. Lessons learned... 1) The porta potty looks much more appealing than it did before I left.
2) I'm not afraid of the dark but not as brave as I wished I were with the things moving around in it.
3) I'm not necessarily afraid of death, but I'd prefer it happen in my sleep.
