Current Creek Capers


An action shot in extreme conditions.
Day time temps in the single digits to below zero.
Some interesting factoids of the day:

Water in your backpack stayed liquid for about two hours before becoming slushy. Then froze solid in just under four hours.

Believe it or not staying cool is very important on days like this. If you become over heated and sweat, the sweat acts to super cool the body when you stop moving. It ruins any insulating layers you have on. Once you’re wet, you’re done.

If you breathe in hard through your nose on days like today, your nose hairs freeze together and close the nostril, weird but true.
