Our sampling location at Imnavait
Allison and I trucked out there with our beer pitchers (it was the only thing that I could find that was large enough to scoop water out of the lake!!) and our 4 carboys that can hold 20 L each to collect water. The carboys weight 55lbs each when full, so it was a bit of a haul back to the truck :-).
On Sunday, we decided we were far enough in filtering that we could take a break and head out for a hike. Sunday is generally when most people in camp take the day off and hike or sleep etc. Since this was our only Sunday in camp, we had to make the most of it and explore! We joined a little group that was headed south to Galbrith Lake to check out the peaks around that area. Once you get up on the ridges it is fairly easy to tromp from peak to peak along the ridge.
When we got to Galbrith, we did a bit of scouting to determine where to go. I was bound and determined to get out of slogging through the tundra up to the ridges - so we picked a few that looked like good hiking and headed up and away!
This picture is of Allison and Kiki as they hiked up over our first summit of the day!
After the first summit, we realized that since we were already so high, we should continue along the ridge to reach a slightly higher peak.
This is the view I wanted!!
