You are nuts, camping in the snow. Yet so peaceful, no one around. I can see why. Got to keep the wife happy, cold not her bag. But she loves the mountains of the Northern Rockies as long as she can have the heater on.

Thanks for sharing your New Year's trip report with us. It looked really cold where you were at but that's what winter camping is all about. Personally, at my age, I would rather be indoors in front of a warm fireplace sipping on some hot coffee instead of freezing to death outdoors. My old bones can't take the cold weather anymore like it used to. I'm glad to see somebody brave enough to venture out to start the New Year off. I'm just waiting for the weather to get a lot warmer where I live so that I can assemble and attach the lock and load maximum security cargo tray to the front end hitch receiver on my truck that Torklift International sent me as a Christmas present from them. Check out their website at http://www.torklift.com and look at the recent blog post titled Torklift Delivers Christmas.

I never make the same mistake twice as I do it five or six times just to make sure

We were in the 20's at Deception Pass. The hope was to see the Northern Lights but we were surrounded by trees. A friend did gret pictures just up the road in Anacortes.
