I have today and tomorrow off work so I'm out right now sitting at a fire for another overnight near Red River Gorge, KY to have my first snow outing of the year... only 1-3" though. Temperatures are about a high of 23 and low of 15 or so Fahrenheit. Got in late, around 3pm, so I'm camping near my car and will head out in the morning for a hiking loop of some kind. I'll update when I'm home with pictures, etc.

They must have put new cell towers out here or something, I have service. I am up near the ridge tops though.

Back home. A few photos from the campsite. These were taken just after I got the shelter set up and before I lit the fire not long before dark (maybe 5:30p.m. 1/5/17).

The low overnight went down to about 9 degrees Fahrenheit with the windchill at about -3 Fahrenheit. Colder and with more snow than was on the forecast... but it's the mountains, so it's basically to be expected. My site was pretty well insulated from the wind though. I got a lot of snow from about 8pm to 11pm.

It took longer than normal to get the fire going. It rained a few days ago and then froze so the wood took some time to dry. A 2" by 6" resin soaked piece of fatwood got things going though.

I didn't get any photos from my next morning hike. My camera batter died... and my phone battery died too since I spent all night taking advantage of my full phone service watching YouTube, etc (great time communing with nature, right?)

Great pics man! That looks awesome! I haven't found time to get out lately though I'm working in some bitter ass cold! Was-13 this am :0

I heard it might rain this weekend wtf?! So I may try and squeeze a hike in for my sanity sake before it gets wet.

Lol at the cell service I do the same thing and when it doesn't work I get happy sometimes

I have a set of the smart wool merino wool base layer and they are very nice, but spendy!

You guys using any other merino wool base layer that performs well but less spendy?

I have this one.

Finnish company... but they ship to USA at something like a flat rate of $9.99. The link is for a merino t-shirt but they make boxers, long johns, hoodies, etc in merino wool.

Little walk in the west desert last weekend. It was 4 when we got there but warmed up to about 20-25. I typically hike with a fleece and a under Armory shirt, poly pros under my pants. I keep a gortex for wind and rain, extra fleece and a woobie in the pack. If I carry a pack I'll have a bivi sack too. I tend to just keep moving so I don't freeze.

My rabbit hunting rig is an SSO nuker with 12L SSO pack. For elk I use an SSO Smersh with the 12L. I've got my choice of larger packs from Eberlystock to Max to ever SSO bober-m. I have way too much gear, piles of SSO.

I need to get a better sleeping bag before I do over night in that crap though. Cold weather sleeping bags for hiking are a pain to figure out.

Looks like your out in the basin, spent a lot of my early years running around out there. Most of my extended family is out there, your probably married to my cousin, lol.

Kosea, a member here, keeps taking my money and sending me gear from Russia. I have SSO Sposn gear coming out my ears, it's good stuff.

I need to get a tag and come out for for something with claws.

Beautiful pictures Bad (and Lcpl too!). I've done plenty of fair weather camping in UT, but only just started my cold weather adventures in the Uintas. Still too much of an under-equipped wuss to brave the conditions you're venturing in!

Had my first real taste of it this year elk hunting in the south slope, I need better gear and get in better shape for sure.

I use it often, so it was worth it... and I didn't buy it all at once. The nice thing is, a plain hammock itself is pretty affordable...

Any tarp can work to go over top of it to block wind and rain, even the cheap blue/camo ones available from Walmart or Harbor Freight.

You can use a sleeping pad or closed cell foam pad instead of an underquilt and a sleeping bag will work as a top quilt.

If you find that hammocking is the way to go for you, then you can upgrade your gear one piece at a time.

Great thread, I don't know how I missed it. I didn't get out much this Winter. I took the hammock out and camped a couple nights to hunt deer in Western PA and once down in Southern OH but that was about it. Thanks for sharing. This has motivated me to plan some hikes and camping for next Winter.

I always liked my gortex type boots in extreme cold with a liner. They are about 1 size bigger to accommodate the liner. It's like a built in padded sock but I didn't do a lot of hiking in it.

I usually just wear two pairs of synthetic or wool socks with my boots and don't go in very deep snow if I can help it.

I haven't vermin weeks and the same old excuses of too busy have hindered things but we have been getting hammered with snow and it's easy to get stuck or slide in this stuff.

Utah snow is super slick sometimes even I noticed it was like lubed ice!

My environment in the winter is generally between 0-35 degrees Fahrenheit with rarely ever more than a foot of snow, usually no snow or 1-6 inches, or a snow/rain/ice mix... so in other words, below freezing and often wet or muddy. I also hike and camp in hilly, rocky terrain where creek crossings can be fairly common.

I haven't ever found myself needing snow shoes or crampons here, so I don't use those.

I do use a pair of Outdoor Research Rocky Mountain High Gaiters if it's wet/snowy.
https://www.amazon.com/Outdoor-Resea...ers&th=1&psc=1

As for winter boots, my preferred cold weather boot (for my environment!) are my Meindl Perfekt 10" boots.
http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabel...kt%26CQ_st%3Db

Since those boots have 400 grams of thinsulate insulation, I generally only wear a light/medium wool sock in them.

If it's a little warmer, I have a pair of Alico Summit Light Hiking Boots (Sierra Trading Post sells some Alico boots on clearance. All good products. The light version that I have is sold out but they have the regulars, just heavier.)
http://www.sierratradingpost.com/ali...ng=s~alico-%2F

The Alico's are leather outer / leather inner with no insulation so depending on the temperature, I'll wear either a light wool sock or a heavy wool sock.

I also treat all of my leather boots with Obenauf's Heavy Duty Leather Protector.

went on about 6 mi hike, just outside of town. State land that joins up with blm, indian and forest. About half the hike was pretty demanding with some streches of dirt road/atv trails that had less snow.
coyotes were calling and the eagles are still out, this one was feeding on some road kill quite majestically




At the midway point i decided to go up the tallest hill nearby that connect to the nearest mountain with a series of foot hills, ridgebacks. As I was goin up this one I found some interesting tracks.


interesting prints I found here and forgot to get a god pick of the print/ trail from a zoomed out shot but i had heard a strange puff noise earlier and the site of the tracks was very close quarters in a juniper forest on the steep slope with little visibility so I didnt stick around too long and I hiked up to the tallest point but didnt see anything.




so its a bigfoot right??
:P

Well above 8000 ft they are still getting hammered with snow. This last storm dropped up to a foot and a half of snow. Pretty common for the Unitas and the Rockies though.

This res had argin sheet of ice and now it's free.


Down in the valley temps are thawing out and we've seen 60-70's before this last rainy/cold front came in.

Check out my new sister thread warm weather hiking and let keep the bushcraft and outdoors talk going.

Well its that time again!

Yep we had our first snow in the Basin a couple weejs ago. And though the peaks are still white it melted down in the valleys and we are now enjoying unseasonably warm weather. But the snow was a taste of the coming season. Of course I had to go out and play in it







Anybody getting their cold weather on??

That area would be a perfect spot to build a primitave shelter with a bed off the ground. Looks like your shelter resources are scarce there so anywhere there are trees is a valuable asset, i would build shelters along your route and off the trail 20 or so yards. You can hone your bushcraft skills and learn more about the available resources in that imeadate area.

Yes with a hammock you need a lot of insulation underneath you, or it will suck all of warmth out of you like a cold water bed.

The cold ground will too, but it is usually requires less insulation.

I was building two story cabins way up north.

We tried extending the rooms upstairs over the front.

The heat was a wood stove on the ground floor.

The extended area would stay freezing cold.

The only way we had to fix it was to heavily insulate the extended area.

When the second floor walls were even with the ground floor, the wood stove would keep it nice and warm.

I designed some Winter tents that have the same material area as small hammock tents and when made of lightweight nylon, fold to about the size of a box of mac and cheese.

I think I started with a hammock tent of 168 sq ft and ended up with 166 sq ft of material for my one man tent.

So right around the same amount of material.

You can hone your bushcraft skills and learn more about the available resources in that imeadate area.
Seems like the Quakies and pines start around 7-8000 feets. The mountains to the north run of my AO from SLC into Oregon. The spot in this pic is pretty cool. I jumped a few moose here. Love the short twisty trees theres two groves of them. Would love to camp there, its right on the edge of a hill I bet the wind would be horrendous.

If you countinue up that riad theres a lake and camp at 10000 feet and a few snaller lakes around it. Just beautiful and packed with game
