A bit of a dream day yesterday putting the skills together on a ski descent of Mt. Sir Douglas via the NW Face Direct with @shittymountaineer. Near flawless condtions allowed us to ski almost the entire route, aside from downclimbing about 5m off the summit ridge and re-ascending a rappel of similar length that we had used to get onto the face. Stoked... and still a little tired.
Day 3: Calm morning skies gave way to a hellacious afternoon wind storm that sent us scrambling back to camp to tie down the tents and drink tequila. Trip morale hits an all time low. #skitouring#wyoming#windriver#winsomelosesome
The eastside never disappoints even when you don’t bag everything you want. Just means there’s more of a reason to come back with a better plan.
Each year in spring 2500 reindeer are returned to the Lyngen islands. Some return by trucks, but this time they came by boat! A few hundred animals were released right besides our vans. This was such an unexpected surprise! 🙏🇳🇴
