Desolation Wilderness California - It looks idyllic, and it had definitely been a choice campsite for campers before us, but our inexperience hurt us here. This site on this day, downwind of a snow covered slope was like camping in an open-air refrigerator. We were so eager to set up camp it did not occur to us to keep shopping for a warmer spot. Instead, I rued the decision to leave my down jacket behind.
