Departure to Lake Joyce, Dry Valleys

Posted by Anne D Jungblut on Dec 3, 2010 11:21:50 AM

Much of the travel around Ross Island and the Dry Valleys is done by helicopter because this is often the only way to reach many of the remote research locations.  Therefore, it was also the means of transportation for me to get to my first field site Lake Joyce in Pearce Valley (Dry Valleys, Antarctica).

I was scheduled to fly early in the morning and my cargo did not only contain my science equipment but also the much awaited  food resupplies for our camp including frozen eggs, olive oil, muesli and plenty of salsa sauce etc.

The flight took me along Ross Island and many incredibly beautiful mountain ranges and glaciers.
