In the night Kino and Juana with Coyotito skirt the edge of the town and take the road through the brush country towards Loreto. The night is windy and Kino is thankful because the wind will erase their tracks on the dusty path.Like a hunted animal and is careful that they should walk in the wheel ruts so that in the morning the first wagon will erase their prints. At dawn they take shelter off the road behind a clump of trees and Kino uses a branch to wipe away the footprints where they left the road.
