The best way to record these observations is to carry a small notebook or digital recorder to record these observations throughout the day. Most writers have lost excellent ideas or observations for failing to immediately record what is remembered.

I normally record the day's observations when I retire to my tent at the end of a day's trek. I have carried a digital recorder during a few of my climbs but at high altitudes and under extreme weather conditions the batteries of the recorder do not last for long.
