Call Me a Cab
nature is no joke. I'm guessing that's CXL, it must have been like rock hard fiberglass in that kind of cold weather.Aero Thunderbay in cold weather. First three photos are in Page Arizona, selfie is in Zion Park Utah with Angels landing in the background.
Edit. By the way, I was just in the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, did a 7 mile hike straight down to the canyon. It became deadly cold after 7pm, on the 7 mile hike back up. My sweat from the previous hours began to freeze and the water in my water bottle, despite being constantly moved around and shaken, froze solid. I was dragging up the canyon in incredible darkness (cell phone light in Thunderbay pocket lit the way). The temperature went from upper 20s, to lower teens and possibly lower, with howling wind. The Thunderbay blocks windchill like a steel shield. Thank the horse's hide for that. Scary experience, had to share it. It is the Kaibab trail, and it is no joke. A serious hike in serious cold weather right now.

When I was getting into photography, I spent a few days in Paige and Zion about a decade ago. Amazing trip. I went to the Indian sandstone slot creeks and horseshoe bend in Paige. Nothing makes you feel smaller than your physical presence in the splendor of nature. A couple of handful of people had died in these slot creeks during a flash flood a few years earlier and I think a few people a year die on that hike to Angel Landing in Zion.
