Humboldt - turn right

Yesterday, we reached the automatic weather station Humboldt.

In the picture, Sastrugies, Humboldt, and our campsite. Once more, the wind vane was pointing south, this time this is less annoying, as we will start to head north-eastwards from now on.

We camped right there, which is certainly not recommended. But in our 148 km we had quite some slow progression and 100 km of sastrugies and icy patches in our legs and were tired. We paid attention however. The tent is downwind and north of the station, in order not to cast shadows, alter the wind flow, or generate snowdrift around it.
