With these pictures in mind, I left Qullissat, I went down to the shore with the intention to hike along the shoreline towards to Gamle Qullissat.
Walking along the shore the devastations of the tsunami were still very evident. Huge masses of drift wood from the destroyed houses of Qullissat and mining installations were spread around. South of Qullissat destroyed tracks of the old mining railway prove evidence of the enormous forces of the tsunami they were objected to.
Hiking southwards along the shoreline was easy and good progress was made. The layering of coal (lignite) in between layers of sandstone was very visible. After moving further south for some 4-5 km I turned land inwards and started my ascent up to the first glacier.
However, the weather got worse as it started to rain and I decided to look for a suitable camp site for staying overnight. The weather situation remained bad over night. It rained, it was foggy, and visibility was quite low. Till the afternoon the situation did not improve significantly. I was not feeling well mentally. Waiting for the weather to improve, doing nothing but resting and calculating the days, the progress required, and when at latest to return to Qullissat was depressing.
