11 deg F is "only" -11.6 deg C. You wouldn't have worn blue jeans at -26 for very long, as that's -15 deg F.

Suprised the batteries lasted that long though, did you keep them close to the body?

Yeah, after I hit the post button, I realized that when  I converted to degree C,  I looked at the wrong column. Up by the Upper Falls, there was a brisk wind down the gorge. Sure felt on my face, that it was minus something.

All three of us had no battery problems and we were there in the park for 3 hours or so. My cameras were in the case when not in use, Pete and Dave had their cameras in jacket pockets.

Before we came back in to the apartmen,t we put all the camera gear in gallon plastic freezer bags and sealed them up. Did not open the bags until they had warmed up. No Condensation at all.
