Breakfast at Emigrant Campground
My picnic table after a simple breakfast of coffee, granola, almonds, dried apricots and instant miso soup with seaweed; and more coffee.
I had even more coffee earlier with Phil and Renée at the camp site across from me. They showed me where crows pecked a big hole through the plastic container of water that they had left outside on their picnic table overnight. Phil also had some extra replacement bolts to offer me for my bike rack, in case my temporary bolt fails.
It's only 9h00, but it's a hot day already. As usual, my sleep was abruptly terminated this morning by the hot sun making it extremely hot inside my tent. The first thing to do after opening one's eyes is to open the tent as quickly as possible to get some air inside!
I'm feeling a bit tired, both muscularly and sleep-wise, but that won't stop me. I consider a hike across the fan and up Lemoigne Canyon a few miles in the background, but I instinctively want to go higher up into cooler air today. I haven't figured out yet whether hiking or riding would be best for my sore knee.
