Cold grey morning with bitter north wind. A hard days paddle but we made our goal to get through the Koangok Narrows. Saw a white wolf and later a caribou at a distance, both walking along the shore. No luck in the fishing department. The food stores are getting lean, though we are still managing three meals plus snacks, only for a few more days though. The sun made a brief appearance this afternoon but it made little difference because of the freezing wind.
