I have to admit it is 54 degrees this morning at the beach. But supposed to be back in the 80's later today.

It's 5AM and started snowing again. There's a little on the ground,but not much. The temp is 27 degrees outside.

I kept the furnace set at 70 degrees last night, warmer than usual, because I figured enough of that heat would radiate into the outer plumbing to keep it from freezing.

I did pour a half gallon of antifreeze into the empty gray tank to protect the drain pipe and valve. Wasn't so worried about the larger black tank plumbing. I still have running water this morning, so I guess I'm OK.

It's kind of fun testing the limits on my 26BH. But I know that if I ever upgrade, I'll get something that's designed to handle cold weather. I guess I need a 4 season RV instead of this 3 season one.

Here's a pic of my truck, before it went down the Shafer trail in Canyonlands NP. You can see the switchbacks in the road on the left side of the pic. I went farther than you can see in the pic, but not to the bottom. The road got too rough for my highway tires. I gotta admit, it was an exciting drive!

The next pic shows Shafer trail from the canyon rim above. The trail leads to White Rim Canyon.

I just took a walk up the road towards Geyser Pass Trailhead. About a half mile up the road, in the mud, I saw some bear tracks.

The snow continues to fall, but it's mostly melting when it hits the ground.
