Ed Viesturs Arrives on Baffin Island Part II

By Ed Viesturs - April 25th, 2008

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

It's Ed, just to finish up my dispatch, we're going to spend some time tomorrow chatting with some of the locals, we want to find out a little bit about what's going on in the area, and finalize our food purchases and do our packing and go for a training ski. The weather is not too bad, it's about 10 or 15 degrees here, pretty much twilight, it won't get dark at all and we're hoping that for the next two weeks or more we'll have reasonable weather so we can get some great views. There are beautiful peaks that we can see across the sound on Bylot Island, the highest of which is about 1800 meters so the relief is quite dramatic and the glaciers that spill through these mountains are the highways that will allow us to enter and go up onto the Island and do some exploring. So thanks for checking in its great to be back on GreatOutdoors.com and stay tuned daily for more dispatches from Ed and John from Baffin Island.
