Posted a trip report from last month, had a great time. See: Hidden campsite, A Le Inn, Mount Reveille (partway).

Wondering if anyone else has seen the kind of blinking white lights I've noticed a couple of times, associated with jet rumble, at night. Not normal aircraft lighting, seemingly for some sort of training or exercise. Next time I'll try to get video.

I've seen this at least once before - seemingly relatively low flying, multiple aircraft with bright white lights blinking - in this case 2 ON, then a count for 2 off, then 2 ON, then a count for two off, repeating. A few minutes later another craft (apparently) blinking 6 ON, count for 6 off, repeating.

Just curious if anyone has seen anything similar?
