Alaska, The Tour, Day 3, Moving Day

Day three was moving day and, after a little cogitation, we headed over to near the mouth of the Heiden Glacier.

More gray skies accompanied us this day.
We skied down to the toe of the Deserted Glacier on few inches of damp new snow.
The toe of the Deserted was striking.
Then we traveled up over benches in the clouds. Kudos to Jed for some fine GPS work.
We came across a bare patch of ground which was covered, every inch, by lichen and moss.
We found another nice, level site and set up camp.
A much appreciated relaxing, albeit fairly strenuous, day.
