Snow at Lake Bonney!

During every mission, Bill and Vickie track the robot from above the ice using a radio beacon. This is always a cold few hours, but today's afternoon was extra special for them I'm sure. This is them returning to the bot house after the mission.

Taylor Glacier just as the snow was slowing down and the clouds were beginning to break.

I thought this cloud coming down over the mountains was pretty awesome. You can hardly tell I took this while going 20 mph on a bumpy ATV, can ya? This is looking back towards West Lake Bonney just as we approached camp.

Here's my tent the next day, with a nice little snow drift protecting the entrance.

And yes, I did take a picture of Shilpa. I thought it turned out really well, especially considering I was over 50 feet away.
