A photo I took a few weeks ago to remind you exactly how beautiful, pure & unique this most delicate place is
I promised to not send another pic of someone in a white blanket but if I can’t escape it then why should you :))))
I promise this is the very last photo of some bloke fighting his way across a white blanket
Bernice hauls herself & her sledge out of yet another invisible hole in yet another day of ‘whiteout’
Eric Philips looking a bit epic after the strain of days of relentless hauling through a blank white canvas begin to show
Spent whole day falling over things! Zero contrast & strong winds in the face all day!
Eric hauls his sledge out of a lead of ‘slush puppy’ ice, a short but necessary swim…just after breakfast too!
Eric does a spot of ‘gardening’ to make our access to a point of ‘absolutely no return’ slightly safer. A committing & interesting moment in the day.
Eric rests for a second at the end of a long day of wind in the face; big ice & water, 8 hours & only 3km gained
Each time we cross a ‘lead’ we use a new method as all crossings are different. With max speed we try to stay dry.
