Colorado, the morning riding after camping in Lathrup State Park, the night before wasn't terrible. The higher I got the colder it got so I would ride, stop, zip up and repeat that until all the were closed and then I layerd up with the North Face Hoody, and then finally the balaclava. Climbed from 6000ft to 9000ft that morning and it felt like 15-20 degree difference.

The really cold days took place in Oregon for 2-3 days but that was abnormal because of an icy front that swept the Northwest—around the time was I was passing through Silverlake, Oregon to visting Crater Lake. It was chilly and got pretty miserable riding during the late afternoons and twilight. I didn't camp at all in Oregon.
