Forging on


I spent the entire day at West Thumb recouping and looking around. Fingers are quite bloody from the cracks which is no fun. That is defintely one thing I got to solve otherwise I’m Gonna be toast.

I’m forging onto Old Faithful tomorrow. Apparently there’s a couple who walks to Old Faithful on snowshoes every year. Their goal is to walk to Old Faithful on snow shoes from every entrance in the park. After crossing the park on snowshoes I have to say that’s a pretty steep challenge. But they catch a ride back so it’s not like they have to round trip it.

It was cold last night minus 20 again but not too shabby know the warming hut.

I’m getting in Alpine start so I need to go to bed since it’s 8 PM. Hopefully I will be a will to make it over Craig pass without too much trouble.

    Hi Aaron–My husband & I visited with you at the West Thumb and later on Christmas at Snow Lodge when you were having dinner. I hope you still get replies on these older blogs pages. I was impressed by your split and bleeding fingers. Mine do the same thing in winter. I found a product at Wind River Gear in Dubois, Wyoming that absolutely works and wanted to share it with you. It is called O’Keefe’s Working Hands (says on the label “Guaranteed relief for dry hands that crack and split…and it’s true) It’s not greasy and really works. A toll-free number listed on package 800-275-2718…they’d be a great Antarctic sponsor, I think. If you can’t find it…let me know and I’ll send you some. Blessings on your journeys!! Best Regards, Bobbie
