Viewing Post for: Greenland by Day Hike

Date: Friday, August 26
Location: Eqalorutsit Fjord

Where is that you might ask? Laid down to sleep under the stars last night and the northern lights came out direct overhead! How cool! Love Greenland.

Today we day hiked 3.5 down to an amazing fjord. 3 mile wide huge glacier calving into it. Pic today does not do it justice.

At the head is what we are guessing a thousand year old Viking or Greenlandic site. How did they live here?

Now we are hunkered down in an emergency shelter. Views all the way around. Hard to explain the remoteness, rawness, extreme beauty. It is tea time. A bit of wind blowing drowning out the waterfall sound.

Tomorrow we get up at 5 am. Need to be hiking by 6 am. Need the 8 hours to make our pick up by boat by 2:45. Hoping with the clearing sky more northern lights.

Stay tuned and we will let you know...

Hi there, all is well here. I will be going to the Greek festival this afternoon and picking up some spinach pie for Paul for the weekend. And then on Monday we return to Rocky's for more eggplant. We found your corn shed on East Henrietta Road and he took some home on Friday along with some fish from Palmer's after lunch. Will be happy to see you on Wednesday after your adventures at the top of the world. love to you both from Mary
