Carrizo-Pozo was always early January, from way back before my first run with the group about 2011. I would look forward to that. After Christmas I'm working, then the kids are coming down for the NY weekend. I've burned all my vacation days for 2017 - come the first I got a few more weeks. Late night campfire at 'frozo-pozo', and some familiar faces. The year it was 19* by about 3am.
