    First camp of the year *PIC HEAVY*

    Julia, Rain, Kevin, Becky, and myself decided to step out for an over-nighter this week. All but one have never camped in temps lower than the mid-high 30's, so this trip was fun. I've never seen my water and gear freeze. Although nothing in comparison to you maniacs in neighboring states, this is COLD for the SoCal folks.

    We had varying direction wind changes with 15-20mph gusts that died down around 12am. Temp got down to a low of 23* not including windchill.

    So enough talking from me, here are a few photos.

    I've always wanted to spell my name in the snow: This trip let me check it off my list.




    When I woke up, I was surprised to see my water had slighly frozen over.

    Also wonder if it's DIY. Looks like a Sami "kåsa" (that's the Swedish word, I think it's different in Sami):
