Whiteout Pic

This is a good example of the whiteout conditions I biked in frequently. Notice that the background is nothing but white, and you can't even tell the difference between ice and sky. Without being able to see the sastrugi, riding on days like this was very difficult. Also, I had problems being able to keep my goggles free of fog when there was no wind and it was higher humidity like here. So I risked snow blindness and frostbite a few times so that I could almost see where I was going.
