I rolled over and opened my eyes. The evening thunderclouds had cleared, exposing a full moon that illuminated the eastern Oregon landscape. Shoving my head out of my mummy bag, I leaned up and looked around. The interior of the Syncro lit up like I was parked under a city street lamp.

Checking my Luminox watch, it was just 11:17 PM. After a day of hiking and driving my brother and I had called it a night soon after sunset. Peeking out of the window, I spotted Tim sleeping under a nearby juniper tree, sans tent. Cracking the window, I grabbed my camera steadied it against the window frame.
After a few minutes of walking around the high desert landscape snapping pictures, the comfort of my LL Bean sleeping bag seemed rather appealing. Gingerly hopping across the sage-covered ground, I jumped back into the Syncro to enjoy a few more hours of sleep before a hike up a nearby mountain the next morning.
