Thawing out tonight.
Lincoln and I were thwarted in our quest to climb up Elephant Peak, MT this afternoon, due to 18 degrees, 12 MPH wind, and the snow on the gravel road too deep to reach that trail head. We did walk along the plains for an hour. I ending up freakin’ freezing.
I had on three layers on top: Ibex wool t-shirt, Patagonia Wool II midweight zip crew, and North Face 7 Summit softshell. My Ibex winter gloves were a joke, as my hands were painfully cold walking back to the truck, and in agony as they thawed out in the heated cab. It’s full blown winter conditions here.
