I know, that is a very tantalizing title for a short post, but it is 11 pm and a longer telling of the days events will have to wait until tomorrow.
But here are three photos to whet the appetite:
On the flight up to the field site, which is right on top of the dome on the left at the head of the valley system.
Grainy iPhone zoom but give a great sense of the drama of the position of the field site. We were way up high on a small ice cap surrounded by mountains that were sticking up out of a much lower layer of cloud. Words can’t describe it (though I will try them later!)
My after-school Milton crew, this is for you. This is one of the shallower pits we have sampled, but from here I have two different kinds of snow/ice samples and Matt (Dr. Evans) is starting a core. These will all go to Milton for us to work on!
