Diary of Novice Camper and Climber Anne-Marie Sorrenti
Day 1: Thursday August 13
Well, we all made it to Canmore, Alberta to kickoff our training camp in preparation for Antarctica in January. Full of excitement, we were ready to take on the challenge of the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefields and to try out some of the brand spanking new equipment received in the knick of time. We also came equipped with the generously donated Canada Goose outerwear and La Sportiva mountaineering boots we had received before departure.
