sunny and COLD!

My water bottle was icy and my shoes frozen solid this morning. Very cold and I wore my down parka most of the day while hiking, which is crazy since it is so toasty I usually can only wear it for the first 10 minutes in the morning while I walk. Dark clouds rolled over but soon revealed turquoise sky and I hiked in chilly yet sunny weather. The mountains of the south San Juan wilderness are breathtaking. Hiked about 25 miles and tucked away near some stunted trees while the wind blasted from all directions. Tonight, I slept with water bottles at the foot of my sleeping bag so they don’t freeze solid and I tucked my shoes under my head.
