May 5 Baffin Island

Tessum and his team have reached Glacier Lake. They are now well inside the Park.The weather has been sunny but windy (50 kph). Josee's food is a great hit! They had their first views of Mount Asgaard. The team carries a satellite telephone to call in every day or two but are otherwise cut off from the world. We had to tell, over the telephone, the results of the general election (in Canada) and the fact that the US military got Bin Laden! Tomorrow the plan to climb the Turner Glacier and approach Mount Asgaard [caption id="attachment_27" align="alignnone" width="194" caption="This part of Baffin Island has some of the biggest vertical granite faces in the world"][/caption]
