Woke up from where I cowboy camped, which ended up being the most frosty cold place possible. Poor decisions made after a few too many cold ones.

I hiked late into the evening — all the 'campsites' I came across had a few tents already set up. Some folks were up late shooting guns, others were just sitting around giant fires.
