A cool morning at Pachalka Spring, Mojave National Preserve, with Clark Mountain Range in the background
It was chilly enough last night (in the 40s) that I woke up a few times and even had to zip up the hood on my sleeping bag to stay warm. I'm surprised when I step outside my tent and need to put on long pants due to the chill.
The great thing about the cool morning here at around 5000 feet elevation is that the sun doesn't bake my tent and I'm able to sleep in until around 10h. I have a typical camp breakfast of granola, a dried fruit assortment (nectarine, sour plum, peaches and a pear), tamari almonds, electrolyte-replacer drink, and a small pot of tea.
Pachalka Spring is that tuft of green trees off to the left.
