The other day when Miles and I were using the Trimble GNSS equipment in the Aurkjosen Cirque area.

I had tracking turned on via my Garmin InReach. I think you should be able to see that track logged at the MapShare site. Let me know, just curious. Also, be sure to view that site in satellite/aerial mode vs map so you can see something.

I suggested to James Cameron that he come to Lake Untersee a few years back and he said that while he would love to do so, he had to get back to his day job and make Avatar 2. He had just been completing the dives at the Mariana Trench at the time and I was asking him about the 3D cameras he used….

Windy last night but just noisy…this afternoon is sunny and nice. Hope it stays this way for a few more days!

Note: Dale’s 7 December traverse is marked in Blue. The Red tracks mark the teams historic (annual) arrival/departure point to Lake Untersee Base Camp.
