|We took our ice gear out and got some practice on this snowfield near camp.|

We hiked east to the next bay. We eventually called this Windy Bay - regardless of how calm it was anywhere else, stiff katabatic winds were always sweeping off the glacier into this bay.
|Here I am with some new friends. Note the narrow beach at the foot of the glacier. I was surprised to find most glaciers here had them, so you could actually walk past the glaciers. The fallen chunks of ice on the beach tell you why we rarely did.|

|Note the big elephant seal.|
