High winds at Tsomoriri Lake

It was the morning after the blizzard at Tsomoriri lake. The snow had stopped falling but the winds continued rage.

The wind was scooping up all the snow from the lake surface and carrying it up the mountain slopes and deposited them wherever it met with some resistance. Like the stone walls around these sheep pens or on the roads cut across the mountainside perpendicular to the winds.

Also, as you can see in this video. My bivy tent, the Black Diamond Tripod Bivy, help up to these winds very well. They call it a bombproof shelter and it is no exaggeration.
