Trip to Antarctica
I was given the very special and exciting opportunity to join the Antarctic
Search for Meteorites (ANSMET) team this past season. Thirteen of us
participated in this project over about two months from late November to late
January, and we all got to know and love each other well! I may update this
page with more details and maps of our travels, but for now I've just put up my
pictures. There are hundreds of pictures and dozens of mini videos to look
through! If you'd like the short tour, head straight for:
Otherwise, my pictures are all divided by time frame as follows:
We TRAVEL THERE via Christchurch, New Zealand
In McMurdo Station, we GET READY for the field
We PUT IN to the field, in a few stages
Our FIRST WEEKS are windy but beautiful!
Then it SNOWED for a few weeks,
And it SNOWED AGAIN keeping us from meteorite hunting!
We looked carefully at rocks in HOCKEY CIRQUE
There was some wind in our LAST WEEKS, making amazing
We finally had to TAKE OUT of our campsite
But got a small trip to TAYLOR VALLEY to pick up some
In McMurdo, we did some WINDING DOWN and cleaning up,
then we had to head home!
