mid 20's at night. what do you think? Should I tell the Wife , or let her find out for
herself when she wakes up to snow on the ground

Colder weather camping is fantastic. Fewer, if any, people around. No bugs. Pure joy. Dress and prepare correctly, and you're set to go. Having said that, I would tell her. She can properly prepare and then can't blame you.

Depends on whether you want to be carried off the mountain by strangers or not.

I think he got lucky. Weather looks like it's going to be partly cloudy with high's in the low 50's and lows in the high 20's.
