Camp Life at Lake Fryxell

Posted by Anne D Jungblut on Nov 19, 2012 11:42:14 AM

This year, we will be be out in the field for 5 weeks. Our first camp is at Lake Fryxell. During our time at Lake Fryxell, we will be able to use the facilities by the US Antarctic Programme, which is pretty cool! The camp consist of a James Way as living area with heating, internet and even a telephone line to Scott Base and McMurdo. We sleep in tents but spend most of the day out on the lake or in the labs and hut.
