I arrive back at the tent just in time to enjoy a perfect Devil's Playground sunset
I'm hungry, and am thinking about tonight's add-boiling-water-to-bag meal: AlpineAire Hawaiian Chicken. It turns out to be similar to the Backpacker's Pantry Sweet and Sour Chicken meal that I ate a few nights ago, but less sweet and less cloying. It seems a bit bland at first, but I decide by the end of the meal that it's actually tastier.
I'm also thinking about the fact that I'm running low on batteries for my flashlight and camera. I intend to stop at Kelso Depot tomorrow and I'm crossing my fingers that they sell batteries there. On my last bicycle-camping trip (to Henry Coe State Park), I brought too many batteries; this time I didn't bring enough, having underestimated the short length of the winter days.
With all these clouds today, I guess it will be another dark night with the almost full moon concealed.
