Lomfjord – 07th Juli 2015

After a long evening yes­ter­day with Fin wha­les and count­less Brünich’s guil­lemots, we star­ted a bit later into the day today. The famous erra­tic boul­der in Lomfjord, a gigan­tic spe­ci­men pla­ced with admi­ra­ble pre­cisi­on by ice age gla­ciers on a nar­row ridge a good 330 metres abo­ve sea level, only came out of the fog when we had actual­ly reached it. But the wind kind­ly blew a hole into the fog, so we could enjoy the views on Hin­lo­pen Strait, Lomfjord and the lar­ge gla­ciers and wide morai­nes in the neigh­bou­ring val­leys, which set us mental­ly back into the plei­sto­ce­ne.
