Almost time for bed. I had the time and enough melted warm water to give myself an upper body sponge bath. That felt great.
Watched the full moon rise, behind thin cloud cover, on this first day of spring.
Not so sore tonight. Did 9.6 KMs, not too bad for starting at noon and taking it careful.
A great day.
Last night’s refuge had a big pot I could melt snow in. I then either boiled that melted snow for food and drinks or I filtered it for today’s drinking water.
No pot here so I needed to find something to hold the snow. Ziplock food bags to the rescue. Happy I had my coffee pot along so I could melt snow for filtered/boiled drinking water and eat and drink from my mug/cup at the same time, which was handy since I needed to eat supper!
I did a fair amount of this today... where the trail was too steep for my liking I just took my skis off, walked down and clipped them back on when I felt confident in the slope. In doing this I learned how to clip in my boots without bending down (which hurt my right side). All the things I’m learning this trip!
