Seeing mountains, or maybe not...

Today the team reports beautiful traveling conditions and smooth going. At one point they thought they saw mountains, but it turned out to be clouds. They are on the lookout for mountains, at least the tops of mountains (called nunataks), as they head toward their second resupply in the Thiel Mountains.

They made 25 kilometers in 10 hours of travel. They ended at S 83.21.441, W 83.43.151. Below is a picture we received of the team at the first resupply.

Make sure to listen to Bryony's audio report. We especially liked the part about how light her sled felt before she realized the second one wasn't attached :)  Check back in again tomorrow for another update from the team!
