Cold!
Climbing at 20,000 feet on Ojos del Salado before the sun came up was the coldest I had ever been. Even wearing plastic boots, I worried about getting frost bite on my toes. Photographed January 8, 2011.

Looks like your lips are turning purple.

I worry about frostbite when it drops below
30-degrees in Arizona. Sheeeez ..

I wish I had been able to measure the temperature. One person in the group had one built into his digital watch but it wasn't able to measure anything below -20.

Damn ... perhaps it was best you didn't
know what the true temp was.
