Adventelva, Svalbard

This storm was thankfully short lived and about 36 hours after it started we were able to set off again. We continued pulking up Adventdalen and then into Adventelva (dalen is Norwegian for valley and elva is river). As we gained height, the valley became narrower and we camped one night in a beautifully white gully with steep banks and sparkling cornices. The next morning we continued east, now on steeper ground as we headed up to our high point- a col between Adventelva and Lundstromdalen. As we were pulking we noticed tracks up ahead. Getting closer we realised they were rather big. Then very big. Then.... Thanks to Flora for the photo.
