Pat Sutherland (tracks on the left) and I went for a 3 hour walk around the base camp. It was 20 degrees below zero Fahrenheit. There was absolutely no wind. The base camp can be seen in the center of the picture. The snow is unexpectedly deep in several areas. You could be walking on level snow and suddenly sink to above the knee level. I sprained a muscle in my leg because this happened so many times. The sun was always very beautiful and shining brightly in a crystal clear blue sky.
