Weather Delay

My tent.  The temperature varies and requires a sequence of clothing layers throughout the night.  It is always technicolor yellow inside.

The trail along & over the Canada Glacier, Taylor Valley, Antarctica
"Word/mist, word/mist: thus it was with me.  And yet my silence was never total-" L. Gluck.

These pictures are of the Canada Glacier, this week I have been sleeping next to it and taking samples of cryoconite holes (melt that forms around sediment and seals with and icy lid) and streams on the surface.  Water chemistry holds clues the ingredients needed to support life on the glacier and downstream.
