Valley of the Cirques


Expedition to the Torngat Mountains

Day 4: Sunday, August 12

We leave camp, caching some food and fuel to pick up on the return,
to continue up the valley toward the icefield and Mont d'Iberville, at 1.652 metres the highest peak in Québec.

The two members with new boots struggle with blisters. Otherwise, things are going well, although Bruno and I would not mind pushing a few more kilometres per day.

I bathe twice today. The water gets colder as we move up the valley toward the mountain, but it feels so good to jump in the icy water, dry off in the wind (and the sun when I'm lucky) and be buck naked in the middle of nowhere.

Maybe I'm turning into an exhibitionist.
