A solid dump of snow overnight slowed us down a tad and we could only manage 23.5km, still a respectable haul considering Jade's tender age and the ailments we are still collectively dealing with.

Today we saw our first evidence of land with the darkness of the coastal hills reflected off the underside of the cloud base, the same as we saw on the west coast. Land sky! Tomorrow we ski onto my coastal map.

Thanks to Russel and Audun for identifying our little mascot birdie, a Northern Wheatear, which migrates from Baffin Island to Portugal.
