Wonderful pictures! Looks like time well spent. Winter in Yosemite can definitely be sublime. Thanks for sharing.

The lows were in the high 20s -- not bad at all. We like the trailer to be very cold at night -- great sleeping weather. A down comforter and four blankets -- so heavy that we are forced to hibernate. We don't run the heater, except during shower time.

We figure that if the Eskimos can survive comfortably in igloos, we will be ok if we dress warmly -- knit caps, several layers of clothing, thermal booties, etc.

But this is all a matter of personal preference. And I would bet that if we lived in a snowy climate (instead of Southern California), we would not find cold weather to be such a pleasant change!

The high temp at my house today (Feb 28) was 83. Dry and sunny, as it always is. Dull.

We love your attitude about cool rooms! We keep our cool weather (fall, winter, spring) bedroom temps in the upper ‘50’s at home....it does make for good sleeping conditions!

We always enjoy your photos and stories....”keep on keeping on”! memtb
