Lens Artists Photo Challenge #73 — Cold

This week Tina hosts Cold for LAPC. It looks like the upper Midwest and northern Great Lakes in US have been facing below average temperatures in November. Some areas have record breaking cold temperature during mid November.

The Mount Evans is cold in summer. The climate on the summit of Mount Evans can be extreme, the annual temperature on the summit is about 18 °F (-8 °C).

When we started hiking up there, it was at around 30 F degree and sunny. 30 minutes later, it started snowing and the temperature dropped quickly.

The Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, Canada is another place that was cold in summer. You can take  snow coaches for transport over the steep grades, snow and ice part way up the glacier.

The glacier is approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) long, covers an area of 6 km2 (2.3 sq mi), and is measured to be between 90–300 metres (300–980 ft) thick.

This week, Tina asks us to share photos and your experience of cold. I chose the Mount Evans and the Athabasca Glacier in Alberta to address cold for this theme. Both were very cold in summer. I really don’t want to know how cold it is during winter.

Due to my travel schedule, I will be late visiting your responses and replying to your comments.

Patti (pilotfishblog.com) will host LAPC #74 next week. Stay tuned

  2. Love the second photo with the clouds peeking above the horizon. Interesting perspective, giving me a sense of climbing towards the clouds. I was in that part of the world a few years ago in the winter and came to a look-out with an arrow pointing the Mt. Evans. Must have been a wonderful experience, Amy. ❤

  4. Great shots! Speaking of warm/cold, a decade or so ago we took some friends on the Pikes Peak Cog Train from warmish Manitou Springs to the 13,000′ level. It was sunny and around the 2nd week in October. Up top it was freeeeezing cold, with the wind whipping at a steady 40 mph or so. Brrrrrrr!!!
