Where I got frostbite
walking home, outside Westcliffe, CO.
fingers & toes.
Got stuck and had to walk 9 miles after sundown. Wearing nothing but socks/sandals lite gloves/coat.got home didn't notice blister on large toe and loss of sensation & swelling in all fingers & toes till the next morning, I was surprised cause it was in the upper 20's, not very cold at all.....Live and learn.
- never fail to be prepared, no need for it to be 30 below to get frostbite. (I've weathered 35 below, no problem -- I WAS prepared then)
