Had to crop the pic to show you how absolutely stunning my Julie girl was on her wedding day! I'm so glad this moment was captured! You would have never guessed it was 14 degrees outside when we took this pic!🌹 #besthuggerever#chickenskin#cantfeelmytoes#worthit
Unfortunately didn't make it up Mt Twynam as planned.
I underestimated the cold, the difficulty of the hike and the weight of my pack.
It got so cold that my sleeping bag was frozen (on the outside) and I had to pack up camp at 3am, pop on my headlamp and hike back to Guthega without water (which froze in my camel pack). It was about a 4 hour snowshoe back to Guthega car park in pitch black. This picture was taken on the final ascent to the car park as the sun started to rise.
Thank you to my wife @tales_of_wonder who kept me up to date on the continuous temperature drop through the night and got me out early.
