Day 9

Day 9 AM

After a very difficult day yesterday ploughing slowly through lots of fresh snow in white out conditions Scellig and I were treated to an amazing red sunrise across the ice!

 

 

 

Day 9 b Start

What a great joy and privilege to be here!
Beautiful sunny am, light south easterly wind and great visibility.

 

 

 

Day 9 c Ice Formation

Cooler temps which Scellig and I appreciated as there was a bit more glide at least earlier in the day.

 

 

 

 

Day 9 d lots of broken ice between Scellig and Hobnail boots and where we want to go

As we got close to noon all this fresh snow became more sticky and less friendly.
Walking through some 15-20cm snow in places.
