30 Jun, 2009 Base Camp
Arctic hares greeted us this morning as we unzipped the tent door, we had breakfast, then called into Caledon radio for our weekly interview and broke camp to move closer to the big glacier. Leaving the tent and a few other things behind, we left with our half-loads to find a new camping spot. Half-hour into our hike, the arctic winds hit us with rain and snow. The high arctic at the peak of summer, you just never know. We trudged on, eventually hauling all our stuff over. That was far enough, this was going to be base camp.
