I went camping with a group a couple weeks ago. I woke up before dawn, stoked up the fire for the sleepy-heads and took a walk with my camera. I returned in time for ~bacon~ and a potluck breakfast of sorts. We went out and studied some geological and paleontological wonderments and went up to a an abandoned silver mine named the War Eagle for lunch. After the rest of the class split off to cram themselves into the crowded Sunday evening freeway traffic I decided to stay in the desert another night and enjoyed a sunset at the marsh near the hot springs. Another very mellow and enjoyable day.
