Anchorage by day
Spent the morning downtown – followed by another attempt at re-packing. Streamlining attempts to pack less gear and have warmer clothes.
The afternoon comprised of taking Norbert’s travelling companion (Bruce) around Anchorage.
For the first time this week – the cold weather was definitely palpable. Ambient temperature was hovering at freezing point – however the wind dropped the temperature dramatically. The winds seem to be ensuring that no-one can get out yet. Norbert will be a Yentna (the teams will be going through there between 4pm and midnight on Sunday). I am going to Finger Lake – the lead teams will be there at daybreak on Monday.
Those are the mountains (yes that is a snow storm) that the mushers and us will be heading into soon.
Now for some supper and an update on the flying conditions.
