Great report and beautiful pics. What type of bag and pad did you use? I found that I have to use a foam mat with my exped 7 when it gets below 30 degrees at night.

I spend a ton of time camping during the winter, but end up using the same Themorest inflatable pad. I do have a "sleeve" that I made for it this year that is made up of heat reflective material. It runs the length of it, and adds a little "r-value." My bag is a Slumberjack DriDown Sojourn -20. I have really liked the bag the couple years I have used it.

Maybe an ice axe next time would be worth the weight? Bow paddler could hammer ice while stern paddler paddles.

Very "cool" trip report. The pics are amazing. I have never pushed the limits like that in the fall, but have some interesting adventures due to my springtime enthusiasm.

Really pretty, early winter photos. It's interesting to see all the exposed rock you'd normally never see. I paddled that area from the numbers down through N Wilder and up the small river through Hudson, Fire and Rifle back to the numbers chain about a year before the fire. It's incredible how it has changed since then and it takes me a minute to recognize the different places.

I upgraded tents to a Hilleberg Nammatj for winter and a Big Agnes Copper Spur for Spring through Fall, I really need to get at least a 0 degree bag like you have. Thanks for the response and the great report.
