Day 14: Swimming, sketching and ptarmigan hunting

August 16, 2010

Today we just had a rest day after all our caching. We got quite a lot of washing done, although it didn’t actually dry. So in the evening drying that around the stove. Had a good swim in the nice glacial lake, which was chilly. Some of us sketched, others went on a hunt for ptarmigan but were unsuccessful. Others did some video shooting. The weather has changed a bit so it is not as sunny, there is quite a bit of rain coming down. We managed to fit six of us in one tent, which is quite a feat.

We are just getting prepared for the day tomorrow when we will heading up the glacier. We have got to pack 7 days of food and all our ice gear; our packs will be quite heavy! It is better than caching everything though.
