Thanks to Kathleen for this rather telling photo: three of us contemplating leaping into the void. Or – “What the hell – this makes going down a lot faster!”
Today was pretty much all about staying warm. Depressingly, this cold is supposed to stay with us for at least the next two weeks.
I want to be a bear. I want to sleep through this and wake up in spring.
Instead, I shall endeavour to stay warm tomorrow by putting on my crampons (!) and going up to the CBC Tower. There appears to a small, select group of us attempting this foolhardy and cold expedition. I am still asking myself why I am doing this.
The only answer I’ve been able to come up with is “Because what else are you supposed to do when it’s this frikkin’ cold out?”
