Frozen Pond at Sunset
It was chilling down quickly as the big sunlamp in the sky hid itself. I donned all but a little of the rest of my clothing; in total: short-sleeve cycling jersey, wool blend hoody, Western Mountaineering down jacking over which went an Ibex down jacket. Wool skull cap with thick wool baseball-style cap with hoody over that, but the down hood on the down jacket was not yet needed. Medium weight wool gloves which still allow operation of the D850 controls (Sony mirrorless a bad joke under such conditions). For the bottoms double socks inside the Five Ten Camp Four boots, base layer bottoms of light wool long johns, mid-weight cycling tight, wool pants and North Face wind/water shell pants.
