Fuji XE3 Camping in Oregon

Grab-n-go kinda trip, just grabbed the bag that already had the XE3, 23 f2, and 35 f1.4 in it. Out the door, trying in vain to get some local campsites, already full. Eventually wound up climbing towards a tiny alpine lake, but got stopped when the old 4runner got stuck in snow. Took 45 mins to free it, then we backtracked a 1/4 mile to a turnout logging road primitive campsite (aka "a flat spot with a rock ring and a view.") Spent two awesome nights here.

Some pics...

When I thought I could make it.

Spoiler alert from the next day... it turned into this not far ahead, for another 4 miles.

Wonderful series, Kyle.
And I have to ask, both because I'm curious, and because, as an Oregonian, part of me is tuned into road trips or camping trips where one winds up braving the elements: how cold did it get there, at night?

Not bad right now. Highs were in the mid 70s up there, lows at night probably mid 40s. So... perfect.
