And best of all, here at the end of the earth I have a friend!

I met her in an equally remote location, Nash Island in downeast Maine.

Natalia shared a most memorable day with me – packing in all we could in the too few hours I was in port. First we took a cab up to the base of the nearby ski area, where we hiked up to Glacier Martial.

See that center pointed peak? Naty skied off that the week before! If you look very closely you can see the tracks where she landed.

The snow caves of Naty’s friends revealed in the thaw. They slept overnight here, to be the first on the slopes.
