It was a windy morning with the plume blowing towards LEH, but we returned to Periscope in the afternoon to pick up samples.
Tobias went with Tom to collect a Giggenbach bottle where we had smelt the hot spring smell, while I collected bags and crimped the Cu tubes. There was a vent there which he measured at 12 or 15C around. I picked up some more Upper Hut debris that had arrived (blown in, presumably, rather than melted through the snow) since our last trip - bamboo, a piece of a page from a book - but probably missed some and expect it will continue to accumulate.
