We hiked up Observation Hill yesterday (a 1.5 mile hike) for some amazing views. It is hard to believe that this landscape is part of earth and not some other alien world. It makes one appreciate the courage of Scott’s and Amundsen’s teams to undertake a journey through hundreds of miles of snow and bitter cold with the gear and technology that does not even come close to what he have today. Thanks to Bob for the photos.
Packing up for Bonney
Vickie and Bill, with help from Robin Ellwood, packed the syntactic foam in crates that will be airlifted by helicopter to lake Bonney. Robin is a junior high teacher and is here with a robot built by 8th grade students.
