A small bird has become our companion, visiting the last few mornings and taking shelter in the ski bindings or next to a sled. Very cute and seemingly unafraid. Just before heading off a huge flock of birds passed us, perhaps thousands strong, morphing and melding as it flew by.

From the get go we were engulfed by a pall of still warm air that turned the snow to a sticky miasma that balled on our ski skins. A quick smear of butter and we were back in glide mode.

Lunch brought a change in fortune and a snow-laden breeze cooled us and our melting chocolate.

I broke trail all day to give Heath's left leg a much needed rest. He has a swollen ankle and shin muscle from an unknown cause. The 26km through thick snow has taken its toll, I'm pretty buggered.

I just heard our mascot birdie chirping outside!
