Sorry, these pics aren't the best! Work in Progress... The weird rocks are ventifacts, carved by wind, the mummified penguins and seals are a few thousand years old, location is in the dry valleys of Antarctica. Enjoy!
memorial to Scott, who died trying to return from the pole, castle rock and Mt. Erebus behind.
Snow school art.
This would make a great garden ornament.
The smoothest ice in the world.
Lake Hoare lake ice, nasty stuff.

Tip of Howard glacier, the Matterhorn in background.
Taylor valley, my home away from home.
ventifacted mountain top, I couldn't resist running op a mountain for one day.
Mt. Lister, 2nd or 3rd highest peak in Antarctica, Ferrar glacier in foreground
this thing was 45 feet long and stuck out into space almost horizontally.
The hand of God.

Finding our GPS coordinates.
Coring for permafrost samples.
The tip of Rhone glacier.
This guy must have been fresh, maybe only 500 years old.
totally 'nam man, 'nam. comin' to sick those penguins.
Where were my ice axes for this trip?
Upper Victoria valley, for reference the glacial wall in back of me is 200' high.
Buried glacial ice, lo and behold, we found an undiscovered glacier. Where I'm digging is pure ice.
Leave no trace, to the point of raking over our tracks.
for reference, this glacier goes up about 4000’
lower Taylor glacier from EAIS
blood falls, iron oxide and bacterial growth
I really want to climb this ice tongue
