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.
