In the after noon the river would melt and then freeze again during the evening.

There was about a foot of snow on the hike in to the cliffs. We crossed over 3 or 4 moose tracks on the way in....
The Cliff Spot
30 second shutter speed made this photo to look like it was taken in the day time.
Moose Tracks
The Mummy Range Early Morning
This was the first peak that illuminated with light.
Some of the hike up was a little on the dangerous side but the top of the cliff is the best place to see some views
After 30 minutes or so other peaks started to illuminate
Tree tops and Mountain tops Nothing like having the sun warm you up after a cold night. The good ol' Sunshine

The Hennessy Hammock ( Home for the night )

Emergency blanket / tarp worked really well with keeping me warm on my back 15$ Bucks at REI

Air mat on the bottom, Foam mat, Emergency blanket, and a 3 layered military sleeping bag

Woke up around 11:20 A.M. after a goodnights sleep and no cold spot.

Morning Time
‎11:23 A.M. What a good nights sleep. No cold spots!, back, hands, feet, and even my face stayed warm. The only thing is when you breathe and its cold frost developed around things the emergency blanket and the gore tex bivy cover had some frost. Next time I will make a way to have my breathe exit without gathering on anything. The things you learn through practicing and preparing.
