Stupid sand…

Decided in the morning, after a way cold -10 C night by the way which tested the limits of the gear i brought, that a nice walk up the dune would be a good idea.  It was only about 1200 yards to the peak.

Well, the first 700 yards wasnt so bad, except it was all sand. It took about 10 minutes.  That last 500 yards though…horrible.  About 500 feet incline which is bad enough but its made out of beach material.  Took another 50 minutes.

Every step was met with a downward slide and a buried foot.  The last 30 yards was a 45 degree angle.  Had to go diagnolly at that point.

Oh well, kind of worth it, except now ive got sand everywhere in my car.
