Boy, I could feel this coming - we camped at 2500-3000 feet and it was 25F last night, with a nip in the air today.... Had dew turn to ice on the picnic tables and the water bottle. Thank goodness for down bags and morning sunshine!

We had a nice layer of ice on the windshield this morning in Oakhurst. Scraping ice just isn't in my California born genes!
