Once we rouse, B promptly starts the coffee and begins to prepare breakfast on the old Coleman stove given to us by my grandfather. Breakfast burritos are a staple camping breakfast for us. Eggs and sausage, for sure. Sometimes a bit of diced potato. Topped with cheese (lots for me, please!) and any other condiments you'd like. Salsa? Sour cream? We always have those two on hand in the cooler.

Believe it or not I used to be a night owl. Work changed all that. Over the past ten years, my average get-to-work time has been 2 AM. Though I know for sure that is an unnatural time to go to work, my favorite time of day "naturally" shifted to morning. And that also applies when I'm not in the mountains.
Even on my off-days I'm up before the sun, and that's my favorite time to walk Bear. Listening to the birds. You might be surprised how many are up that early!
As soon as the sun starts to lighten things up, up goes the window in my home office. That way I can continue to hear the birds and feel the morning breeze. The view from my desk isn't half bad, for an apartment complex in the city.
And if I lean over just a bit, I can see the sun come up before I leave my desk to marvel at the beauty of dew in my garden.
What's your favorite time of day?
