July 11, 1987: First Peak

Amelia Earhart Peak. Killer view before the fog rolled in. Well, for us it’s fog. Back at camp it’s probably just overcast.

I signed the register here “My first peak. We ain’t got nothin’ like this in Illinois.”

I’m here with Anne and Moose, the surviving Del Nortians.

Looking down on Ireland Lake,, you can see all the tracks from the glacier that moseyed on through; the scratches, glacial polish, assorted debris.
