to the Torngat Mountains

An Easy Day
insists on displaying its capricious nature. Last night, strong,
blustery winds loosened guylines on all three tents, forcing
Normand and me out with our headlamps to tighten them. We
were rewarded by a view of the starry sky and Northern Lights,
but we were too tired to stay out long enough to watch for
the meteor shower.
We decide today will be a short day. We move camp a few kilometres
southeast to another tributary of the main watercourse in
the Valley of the Cirques. The goal is to make another summit
Mont d'Iberville tomorrow, weather permitting, from another
direction. Today's weather is typical of unpredictable mountain
climes: sunny and drizzling at the same time, with gusting
winds, low-lying mist clouds and patches of blue sky.
A welcome easy day.
