Wow. You and Tom had actually already done what I had suggested! Some years ago when my telescope was portable I had spend an evening in December at the 5,000 foot elevation, and managed to get through the evening. It actually felt good, but then I had the advantage of a portable observing hut I had made. When I read of accomplishments like your's and Tom's, I wish I had a portable telescope to join you. But then, it might be too much for me and not having one (portable) is a good excuse for not getting out.
