Lens-Artists Challenge #73 –Cold

Posted by

“A bad day camping is still better than a good day working.”


So the Lens Artist photo challenge this week from Tina is COLD. This is timely! I can tell you I spent last night in a crazy, cold tent right outside Moab, Utah. Temps were about 20 (ish degrees Farenheit). When we woke up this morning, the desert, and our tent was laced with frost….how did we manage to stay warm?

-30 degree sleeping bag

Toe warmers in wool socks

A fleece hat, pants and top

A sweet dog to further warm our feet

2 extra Rumpl blankets for said dog

4 season tent

Thick sleeping pad with a wool blanket to insulate the cold ground

Good fire

ALOT of cuddling

View went we set up camp

Little different view when we woke up this morning!


    1. Ha ha! I don’t know that I want to do this all the time, BUT, we found a great campsite we loved. And yes, I have a ton of gear – glad to know it gets put to use sometimes. The stars at night also made it all worth it. 🙂

  1. You know I love this! I despise the cold, but there’s something about a cozy tent with lots of down jackets and blankets and pillows and a warm dog and … well, OK … maybe a warm partner, too! So fun.

      1. Yes, I could see in your latest post that the chill didn’t stop you and that you got a great adventure. We have got a lot of snow today in the middle of Sweden … massive traffic problems, Down here we got snow too, but nothing that lasted, the ground was too wet from the earlier rain. I love snow …
