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.
As always, Ann-Christine, Tina, Patti and I hope you will join us.
Due to my travel schedule, I will be late visiting your responses and replying to your comments.
