Sunday, October 2

Up and down and up and down.

Woke up this morning to frost on the inside of my tent from condensation and frost on the outside from dew. Shook the frost off a bit, but when I unpacked the tent at my lunch break, there was still frost on it. Amazing that a wet stuff sack full of wet nylon kept cold enough for six hours that the frost was still, well, frosty.

The feature of the day was a long climb, six miles and 2500 feet. Followed immediately by a similar descent.

Had great views of glaciers on one of the mountains. Crossed a couple of the creeks that the glacier melt feeds.

Tonight we are camping at 3000 feet instead of last night's 5500, so it shouldn't be quite as cold.
