Just got back from my daughter's GS Troop winter camping trip. It got down to -9F!!! The girls really did well! I was surprised that -9F wasn't all that bad. Cold, but not as terrible as it sounds like. Ok, yes, we were in a cabin with a wood stove, so not as intense as tent camping, but it was a drafty cabin with no water, so not like being at home! We took a 5 mile hike in the snow after breakfast, then a night hike before dinner. The girls loved the stars in the clear cold sky, the squeak of cold snow, and the fun of breaking ice on a dark frozen stream. We followed and attempted to identify all kinds of tracks that went everywhere across the snow. They were amazed at all the signs of life in the cold of winter. The did some great cooking on the stove and managed to keep the cabin warm as well. It was a good trip, and I heartily recommend getting the girls out in the winter.
