Freeze No More

The daily low temperature has slowly risen to the high 30s over the last two weeks. The mercury hit bottom at 22 degrees the day I cooked potato soup at the El Dorado Western Railway engine house. The low in Placerville didn't rise above 30 until January 18.

The temperature in nearby Grizzly Flats sat low 30s in the day Jacob and I drove down North-South Road. North-South crosses the icy creek midway between Mormon Immigrant Trail and Capps Crossing. In the summer, it's a popular "dispersed" camping spot. The Forest Service allows campers to settle along the north shore of the creek.
