|Breakfast and a smile: Kate lightens the mood|
as she prepares breakfast.
|Guides Kate and Tim started a small blaze to warm|
our outdoor cafe on this dreary morning.
|Kate (rowing), Deepa and Yag relax on Miles Lake|
after running Abercrombie Rapid.
|Tim and I pose in front of an iceberg "raft".|
Just minutes after rowing past this raft the smaller of the
two icebergs atop the raft toppled into Miles Lake, producing waves
and the roar of a shotgun blast.
We relaxed with wine, cheese and crackers before savoring another of Kate and Guide Tim’s delicious dinner creations. After dinner I wrote and read, reveling in the view of mountains and glaciers encircling the lake. At some point in their lives, everyone should spend an evening like this. Day Five began in gloom, but ended in grandeur.
