Calm wind
66.16385°N -41.53492°W | 2110 m | Distance today: 23km | Total distance: 160km of approx. 600km

Yesterday 23 km, today 21 km and up to 2110 metres above mean sea level, in a rather even slope. The highest point ca 2500 m. Sunny weather, even using sunblock 50 we happen to be sunburnt, now also on the tongue! Strangely enough we were closely behind another expedition, just 150 m, when those people suddenly ran away! We took it easy during the day, hoping to gain a little extra rest this evening.
