As is the norm lately I’m super late getting blog posts up, but I do have a pretty good collection of photos from the first part of the season down here in Antarctica and figured it was better to share them a few months late than not at all.
The summer season at McMurdo Station is called mainbody and runs from early October through the end of February. Much of the early season work is on the sea ice, which is one of my favorite parts about being down here because it’s one of the only dynamic things down here that can drastically change from day to day. And being on the sea ice is the best chance to see wildlife, well besides some of the strange creatures that work in McMurdo.
Here’s a small collection of photos from the McMurdo Sound area in October and November.
