A well-spent day brings happy sleep. -- Leonardo da Vinci

A little montage of places we stayed...

Alas, I was only able to use the hammock for three nights, all of which I included above. The remainder of the outdoor nights were groundlevel in the tent. Just one and a half thumbs up for the Exped Synmat 7 mattress - plenty of cushion atop gravel and rocks, and a tinge too narrow when sleeping backside, my elbows would be on the ground instead of the mattress. And I'm not that wide. Really.

With the trip taking place in July, we were treated to a couple of weeks of a 24-hr-a-day light skies, which required a blindfold to get to sleep. Although the sun would dip below the horizon at 'night', we didn't need a flashlight to move around at, say, 1am. Not many stars to look at as well.
