More Adventure on Marr Glacier

I have been uploading my Palmer Station videos to YouTube. On the settings (the small gear on the bottom right side of the viewing screen) select HD for the best quality.

Shoveling at the radio repeater again. It is a 5 minute drive or a 40 minute hike.
Another good  snow shoveling at the sled.

The end of Hero Inlet.

A fine machine to drive to work with.

Almost covered with sea ice.

The last of July we finally had good weather. what a wild month of storms.

We are hoping that the sea ice freezes over then we can walk to the islands. It doesn't happen every year. 

A snowy sheathbill walking on the sea ice. He's a fat one. A very lonely life for a bird.

Hiking from the station on the right across the Marr Glacier to Bonaparte Point on the left.

This is the same view from April. What a difference in the hike. Hiking on the snow is so much easier than bouldering. 

Pretty water.

The magnificence of Antarctica.

Two pairs of giant petrels.

  1. Hey, on your more pictures post I was not able to add a comment. I suggest you make a surfboard sign for the post that states the miles and figure out the distance to Cape Canaveral...probably everyone would like to do that! I think the post card pictures are very interesting as they share the different ways the stations present themselves. Your meal after hiking looked delicious, thanks to Kristen. We will eat more veggies and less meat protein when you return! Okay, keep posting for me! Love always, andee
