Evening walk at McMurdo Station, Antarctica

Posted by Anne D Jungblut on Nov 19, 2014 1:36:31 AM

After a day of busy packing, submitting a request for a helicopter and some sequence data analysis, I went for an evening walk. It was a cloudy day and a little chilly as well. Over summer around 1,000 people are at McMurdo station and therefore you can find a little bit of everything that you would also find in any small town or village around the world.
