Early morning coffee-making at Coyote Springs, Mojave National Preserve
I'm inspired by yesterday's great hike into Bighorn Basin, and the hot morning sun prompts me to get up a little early (9h is early for me) for today's ride to the Butcher Knife Canyon area on the northwest side of the New York Mountains.
A lot of small wasp-like flies buzz around while I make coffee. They seem to like both my shiny stainless-steel pot and the water vapour emanating from it.
Breakfast is two cups of dark coffee, granola, tamari almonds and dried apricots. I'd like to make a bowl of instant miso soup, but I'm almost out of water.
