Hi there, the weather was decent today, bright and a rather slow breeze. The ski conditions were good until early afternoon, then I had to ski through a sastrugi land. The sastrugis were both high and very long. In the middle of traveling through those high sastrugis I crossed a snow bridge.. and I started wondering if there were little snow-elves living in each one.. what do you think? Or have I maybe listened too much to Harry Potter?
After all the sastrugi area I walked into someone’s ski path… it was a very strange feeling and truly amazing to know that there is someone else here .. in this deserted ice world. However, the other expedition is still a little further ahead.
I traveled 20.3 km today.. Best regards to everyone at home and thanks for all your support and your messages 🙂
