Leslie Gulch Crickets, September 2010
Recorded September 4, 2010. Very early morning, around 4 a.m.
Length: 12 minutes
In the quietest moments before the morning light, the crickets still sing under a crescent moon, calmed by the cooling of the night.
Below towering cliffs, basalt spires, and unique honeycomb formations, Leslie Gulch opens to a grassland valley which eventually leads to the Owyhee River. This recording was taken only a short hike away from the Slocum Creek campground.
