Cooper Canyon Backpack-San Gabriel Mountains
This is my last outing as HistorianL.
On the morning of Cooper Canyon we got there and put on SNOWSHOES for
the first time. We Hiked 2.5 miles in the snow, and when we got there we
played in the snow, went sledding, and went to build snow caves to
sleep in. At night it got down to 17-23 degrees. We did not do any skits
by the big roasting fire (it was too cold). Hint=do not eat snow it
will drop your body temperature down and you want it up to stay warm. On
the hike back it was all uphill. When I got back I flopped in the
backseat of the car and slept all the way home after I ate a big burger.
