It's so windy up here on Cima Dome this morning that it takes quite a while to boil water for coffee
After moving my burner around a few times to try to shelter it somewhat from the swirling wind (ha, good luck!), I eventually manage to make a second cup of dark coffee, and then an instant backpacker meal.
Breakfast is Mountain House Rice and Chicken, which turns out to be surprisingly good, though a little greasy (corn oil and chicken fat are added to the recipe for flavour). Dessert is tamari almonds, granola, dried apricots and a few chili-lime cashews.
The wind is keeping the flies away, so I eat and drink with the tent open this morning.
