Hi and welcome back!
Today the ambient high temperature here was 9 degrees and the low temperature was 0! With the windchill, the temperature was about -25. We had the day off from school because of the cold, so I hiked early in the day to check out the ice on the pond (it was 4+ inches thick).
Dad and I also hiked on the hill at about 5:30. For both hikes I wore fleece long johns and trail pants on the bottom, liner socks and alpaca wool socks under my boots, and on top I wore a fleece, down jacket, and shell. On my head I had a neck gaiter, a microfleece band over my ears, and then a hat. I was fine with all of that clothing, and both hikes were actually a lot of fun.
The Huffington Post had another blog post about me yesterday! You should definitely
check it out when you have a chance.
He lives near Mt. Hood, which is the highest point in Oregon, and he said he would climb Mt. Hood and King's Peak in Utah with me when I get out there!

They talked to me and my dad inside for a few minutes, then he took some video of me out in the tent. I think it will be on the news tonight. I'll let you know!
That's about everything. Wherever you are, I hope it's not too cold!
Thanks for reading!
