While eating breakfast in the tent, I study my maps in preparation for today's hike over to Live Oak Spring
I get up shortly after 9h to rather grey skies, which allowed me to sleep in. Breakfast is a typical sampling of items in my black bag (tamari and cajun almonds, dried plums and pears), plus hot tea and blueberry electrolyte-replacer drink.
