Sunday, October 2
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.
