Saturday 19th of april, 2013 - Apusiaajik Glacier, East Greenland.
Woke up at eight. The storm seems to have calmed down. I finish my book and start on another one. Everything is now wet inside the tent and we can’t seem to muster up the energy to get up until 10:30. By then the Coffin is buried to the top. I have to dig myself out of the tent and only with my hand fully stretched out I manage to poke through the snow with the tip of my shovel blade. Fresh air! The wind has completely died down and although it’s still snowing, I can see patches of blue peeking through the clouds. After a quick breakfast we start walking at 12:30 heading for the home bowl, which we have been saving for a short day like this. On the way there the sun penetrates through the clouds and suddenly the whole scenery changes. It’s like mother nature has stepped out, but naked, from the shower. She´s fresh, with a new coat of snow. A clean slate. You can almost smell her.
