It's so windy up here on Cima Dome this morning that it takes quite a while to boil water for coffee I have the whole day to spend up here on Cima Dome, so I'll do a hike up to Teutonia Peak and beyondThumbnailsView of Teutonia Peak from the area of my campsite near Sunrise RockI have the whole day to spend up here on Cima Dome, so I'll do a hike up to Teutonia Peak and beyondThumbnailsView of Teutonia Peak from the area of my campsite near Sunrise RockI have the whole day to spend up here on Cima Dome, so I'll do a hike up to Teutonia Peak and beyondThumbnailsView of Teutonia Peak from the area of my campsite near Sunrise RockI have the whole day to spend up here on Cima Dome, so I'll do a hike up to Teutonia Peak and beyondThumbnailsView of Teutonia Peak from the area of my campsite near Sunrise RockI have the whole day to spend up here on Cima Dome, so I'll do a hike up to Teutonia Peak and beyondThumbnailsView of Teutonia Peak from the area of my campsite near Sunrise Rock

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.
