Winter Camping and Our Internal Clock
This interesting news article was in a local paper on February 15. Article by Brett French, The Billings (Montana) Gazette.
"Camping in winter can be miserable. The nights seem painfully long. I toss, turn and check my watch frequently, wondering how it is that only an hour has passed since I last checked the clock.

According to a study published in “Current Biology” by the Sleep and Chronobiology Lab at the University of Colorado Boulder, sleeping outside is a good way to reset your restless winter internal clock."
