Woo, that's brisk

I had checked the forecasts, so I knew what to expect. And I knew the temperature decreases about five degrees for every thousand foot gain in elevation. And, you know, summer is winding down and all that. So I was prepared for a 30-something overnight temperature last night near Truckee.

It's just that it was more of a mental adjustment. Okay, this is where I am now, and this is what it's like here. Put the shorts away. Get the fleece handy.

The good thing, though, is that I don't need to struggle with sleeping in a too-warm van. Gotta keep the head warm, though.

So, here are some photos from around the campsite. What happens when the reservoir is very low for several years? The former lake bed starts to return to its pre-dam state.

Looks like some beavers have learned masonry
