Nap Time

There is something truly luxurious about nap time in the mountains.  You've done your hike (or not, if it's a lay-day!) and the sounds of nature slowly drift away as your eyes close...
Restful?  Like nothing I've ever known.  True, I'll take a nap when we're at home, but so often it seems as if it is a recovery technique.  In the mountains, even after a long hike, it seems like luxury.  Nothing to do, nowhere to go, no meetings to plan.  Just taking the time to lie down and snooze. 
Our new Neo-Air mattresses seems to help, but M often just uses her old Z-rest on the ground, and seems to get the same results.  And my brother in the photo above seems perfectly happy with a tiny slice of thin foam...and a relatively flat rock.
My point exactly.
