I go outside the tent for a moment barefoot (which I usually never do) and step on a yellowjacket: instant sting

Since it's even hotter inside the tent than outside in the sun, I decide to go for a short loop walk around Paradise Lake
I feel like I'm getting a bit of heat exhaustion, so I start on the shady side of the lake to get out of the sun. The idyllic view across Paradise Lake to my tent tries to imitate a landscape painting with its quiet reflections in the water.
