You had me with the SnoBalls...We spent Thanksgiving week exploring the San Rafael Swell, and had some awesome nights camping with the rock walls and stars. night time temps got down to 13 degrees, putting our new 15 degree rated sleeping bag test, we did throw a nylon tarp over the mesh roof of the Gazelle tent before putting the rain fly on, and stayed 'comfortable' during the night. We did bring a small propane heater to heat up the tent when going to bed and getting up, but its amazing how much moisture it puts off even for that short period.
Stayed in Goblin Valley State Park on the first night and was treated to a great view of the Milky Way over the rock walls around camp.

Moon rise from camp was so bright it looked more like a sunset, except for all the stars that were already out.

We had some discussions about the large rocks that had fallen from the cliff walls at some point in history, told Michelle that don't worry this big rock will protect us during the night. While no boulders fell during our stay, the rock did a good job of protecting us from the high winds that made their way down canyon during the night.

Did not expect to have a sit down Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all the fixings, but thanks to late night fuel stop and a truck stop microwave we dined console style in the truck, complete with hostess for desert..lol
