Perkolations: Winter camping: worth it


Winter camping doesn’t sound like fun. It sounds cold, snowy, miserable and, I’ll say it again, cold.

But with the right gear, winter camping is an absolute delight.

The stillness of a cold, crisp night on the ice is unmatched. Somehow, the sky just seems clearer and the stars shine brighter. Bundled up in a warm sleeping bag with a cold nose, listening to the ice shift and sing, is a sort of peace I’ve never felt anywhere else.
