More snow

There was no wind in sight, and the snow kept coming down. It was like a completely different place to the one where we began! We found new ways to keep ourselves entertained, apart from meteorite searching, so that we could enjoy the beauty of our surroundings. Iggy Ridge as playground took on a whole new shine when Oz stumbled onto the ice tunnel that led into a giant wind scoop. We had many fun hours in there, as well as doing more, daring slides down steeper Iggy hills. We also planted more ice poles, took GPS readings for ASTER images and maps, and really got to know our Miller Range area through more rides. The Hockey Cirque wind scoop and ice cliffs next to granite is really spectacular. We got to ring in the New Year together in broad daylight with one of our tasty potlucks and video parties, it was lots of fun! And we finished the igloo - it's hard to describe the peaceful, blue calm you feel inside one of those!
