44 degrees when I left about 30 minutes before sunrise. 25 mph winds made it worse. So glad I lost my previous jackets as the new one has a hood which has saved me. Temps are much lower than projected and we have to go high in mountains two more times. Forced me to abandon the "sleep liner" as my only form of warmth. Bought a lightweight ( will not seem lightweight after carrying another 2.5 weeks) sleeping bag. Now have to find room in my backpack or tie on outside. Better than freezing. Slept in my jacket last night. Lol Carrion is most beautiful place I have visited, other than St. Jean, so far.
GEAUX TIGERS !!!
