Definitely not designed for an overnighter, but always good to get a little practice with minimal kit.  My other goal was to try and get some early high lake fishing in with my Tenkara setup.

sleep/shelter was pretty light/low volume- 50 degree Apex quilt, neoair short, eVENT bivy; I knew temps would be at or below freezing so it was pushing the envelope a bit

got into a quite a bit of snow



 

but the views made it worthwhile




 

 

I lucked out and the lakes were unfrozen (just barely I would say) AND the cutthroats cooperated

 




 

 

 

I camped at the upper lake, needed to find a good sheltered spot and found this boulder- supplemented with some rock wings


 

firewood- check


 

home for the night


I got up at 4:00 AM and called it good (it was cold!), ate a quick breakfast, packed up, donned my headlamp and headed out.  Was quickly warmed by the hiking and 8 miles and now light, back at the truck headed into town for a real breakfast :)

great trip! that's pushing the envelope for sure on nighttime insulation.

thanks- definitely; good to know where the comfort limits are- also good to know I'd still be kicking after an unexpected cold night out, albeit it kicking a little slower than normal :)

All you pictures seem to be disabled on my end. Something about "3rd party hot disabled".

evidently I've exceeded my bandwidth on Photobucket, supposedly it will reset it's self after a certain amount of time

I'll see if I can find a workaround?????
