Making late-morning coffee at the picnic table at Mississippi Lake.
It's not as bad as I was expecting, but my body is giving off weird signals and muscle spasms after yesterday's hot and heavy hike-a-bike trip up Willow Ridge Trail. I'm feeling very tired this morning, almost hungover (despite having consumed no alcohol), but my overworked muscles are "just" feeling overworked, rather than pain-ridden.
My camping filterless drip-coffee maker is really slow. After using it to make coffee during my Death Valley bicycle trip a few months ago, I've switched to a slightly coarser grind of coffee for this trip, but it hasn't improved performance much, if at all.
The hot sun started baking my tent and its contents (me) a bit after 8h this morning, but after a while, the sun rose enough above the ramada here that I was able to relax again inside, rather than just suffocate.
