WAIS Divide Camp at 79.47° S latitude, 112.06 W° longitude – high on the West
Antarctic Ice Sheet Plateau.
I am sending off 2009 with a flight out of WAIS Camp to McMurdo Station. It
will seem like the tropics to me since it is above freezing there. Though I
am sad to be leaving the WAIS community full of fabulous people, I am glad
that my flights are working out almost as scheduled.
Tomorrow there is a big music festival at McM called IceStock – too bad I
forgot my tie dye!
There are a couple of blogs in the hopper that will be posted in the next
few days AND PHOTOS!!!!!
Stay Tuned and Happy New Year!
