Winter Backpacking

It's almost that time again. I tend to save it for when I just can't justify trying to fish due to cold (i.e. February).

Why would you want to do such a thing as spend multiple nights in seriously sub-freezing temperatures? WinterCampers.com's Jim Muller answers that question pretty well, and give some good first-timer advice, in an article for The Conservationist.

Couple more steelhead outings and I'll be yearning for the relative warmth of a fire-side lean-to in winter.

Thanks for the link to nostalgia-inducing picts of home. I can enjoy them and feel part of them while freezing my bum off here. (It dropped from 80 deg to 50 today. Even though that sounds warm to you, a 30 degree drop at any temp feels cold.)
