I've just arrived at the Piute Gorge area and I love it already, as Ranger Matt told me I would, several years ago

Another morning at Piute Gorge; strong winds this morning, and I try to sleep in a little
I take the morning slowly, eating Mountain House Beef Stew for breakfast and lazing around to recover from yesterday's bike ride to Hackberry Spring. I didn't sleep well due to the high winds overnight, and didn't fall asleep until about 2h30.
Two cups of coffee, plus a cup of vitamin-C drink help. Then some spicy Vietnamese beef jerky. A dark-chocolate bar with almonds is a nice dessert treat, but I think I've overeaten. I use some of the plastic-tasting water in my Camelbak to wash up a bit, which feels really good. I haven't had a shower in almost a week!
