Here's the link to a National Geographic blog post about the expedition -
And some photos of x-country skiing to the Herbert Glacier - a 14 miles ski - not bad for my second time ever on x-country skis!
|Bob and Julia take the lead, while I firmly hold position at the rear! It's fun, but hard work, especially "back country' style with no track to guide you. And there was A LOT of snow on the ground!|
|When we reached the glacier, we stopped for lunch - bagels, alaskan smoked salmon, tea and chocolate - a fantastic lunch!|
|We also decided to build a snowman....:)|
|The return was hard on the ankles (well, falling over every bend is hard on the ankles), apparently 14 miles might be a little much as a first go! Icing my foot in the snow, while enjoying an Alaskan brew.|
