Another solid day’s progress across the ice under clear skies and no wind, a magnificent parhelion ice crystal phenomena visible all afternoon. The storm of a few days ago has left a legacy of hard wind-sculpted snow ridges across our course making for bumpy and at times frustrating terrain, difficult to find a rhythm but we’re happy with our progress so far in this silent white world.
