It was chilly overnight and I'm feeling exhausted from yesterday. I was so tired that I didn't wake up once during the night.

However, these are Eriophyllum wallacei (Wallace's Woolly Daisy). I haven't seen a lot of wildflowers yet, perhaps I'll see more on today's hike up into the McCullough Mountains.
