Day 196 – Mormon Lake

It was another cold morning. One in which it was hard to get going. I think knowing that I would be taking the short side trip into Mormon lake did not help my motivation. I was nearly out of food and had no coffee. Powered by water with ice chunks floating in it, I put my head down and made it into Mormon lake where I got batteries for my headlamp and a little bit of food to get me to Flagstaff. The hiking was comically flat. The extent to the hills were maybe 200 foot climbs. The wind picked up in the evening and it was another cold night. I opted to sleep under the stars and stayed up way too late staring up at the galaxy and trying to spot constellations.
