The following message arrived yesterday from the Canadian Expedition:
Dear Moonhouse Expedition,
On the sunny afternoon of April 29th, on the Canadian west-coast, Moonhouse Explorers J. Bergcoutts and L. Bergcoutts ascended by Gondola to the peak of Grouse Mountain where they planted a moonhouse in the snow, at an altitude of approx. 1,200 m (4,000 feet). At sundown 6 stunning photos were taken of the moonhouse with different backdrops. Due to the dramatic difference in temperature between the foot and the peak of the mountain the explorers had to escape the northern winds and find their refuge in the peak chalet where a strengthening coffee and accompanying brownie gave them new energy to embark on fuuture adventures.
Lena & Jeff Bergcoutts
Grouse Mountain stretches the boundary of where the house has explored to by being both the most westerly (126,7°W) location the Moonhouse has exlpored and the place with the highest altitude (1200 m), still on the terra firma. It also adds Canada to the now quite extensive list of nations that the Expedition has ventured to. The most westerly before was Riverview California (117,3°W) and the highest altitude was Drommen (1160 m).
We congratulate Jeff and Lena to their successful expedition a wish them fair winds for their future adventures, with and without the moonhouse.
