14 – The ebbs and flows…

Day 5 - As expected, today was a beautiful day...

After a bit of a challenging day yesterday, I knew I just had to bring my mind back into it. The conditions were never the problem, I just let the change in system mess up my focus. But today I got back in it :)

This is just the ebbs and flows, highs and lows of expedition life... 

I was having the best time all morning. On the 2nd shift I suddenly remembered boot camp stories and cracked up to myself. Those drill instructors were hilarious :)

I was feeling so good, I decided to get out some music. I rocked out to Phil Collins on my 3rd shift. And when those drums hit on "In the air tonight" I played some mean air drums with my ski poles :)

Went back to the tried and true 80's power ballads for the next couple of shifts and was loving every moment of it :) 

I didn't need the music to change my mood, I was having a great time already. I just felt
like it and wanted to have some fun out here.

All in all, a solid and smooth day. We are now right under the Axel Heiberg and tomorrow we begin the climb. It looks intense, awesome, spectacular and terrifying all at the same time. You can see crevasses and seracs surrounding our route up the glacier. We have a safe path up, but it's still pretty wild to see all of this up close.

It's going to be tough going climbing the glacier, but I am so grateful and excited to be on this route. It is unreal to be surrounded by all of this.

Excited to continue the adventure tomorrow...
