Photographs taken, the first order of the day is to get my food and make some breakfast. One day a squirrel is going to get into my food bag, and then I’ll have to buy a critter-proof bag (‘varmit-proof’ is probably the correct local term). I’ve seen a squirrel eat its way through a plastic storage bin, so it’ll be interesting to see how the bags designed to keep them out cope.

Time to get the food bag – taking it down is much quicker than setting it up. Copyright © 2020 Gary Allman, all rights reserved.

Breakfast

Mountain House Breakfast Skillet and a cup of hot chocolate to start, followed by a cup of coffee. My new spoon is great, just right for getting my food out of the bags.

In the background is the remains of last night’s campfire. I didn’t make a fire ring, I dug a shallow pit and used that for my fire. After breakfast, I covered it over with the soil I’d dug up to make the pit, and when I’d finished you would hardly know I have been here.
