noasi on a smaller scale

Progress. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Have an iceberg. The boat in the background for scale is 137m (451’) in length, and a ways off. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Well, let’s see how this goes. Starting Training for the New Alpinism πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΆπŸ“š

More lichen, more moss. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά

Being in this space is magical. My first continental landing at Portal Point. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Drifting slowly in a brash ice field is an amazing experience. Brash ice is compromised of ice chunks less than 2m across, as opposed to icebergs which are more than 5m showing above the surface, and growlers between the two. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Cool. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

I’m going to rest here for a bit. You go on, I’ll catch up. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Less balance, more “hidden mass.” πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

The warmth from the ice we pulled from the bay was generated by the joy of tasting the most amazing water I’ve ever had. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Same sunrise, different moment. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

One month ago today, no sign of land yet. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Lull in the excitement of the day. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

This dawn contrasted heavily with the overcast day on the continent. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

Clouds above. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

The most abundant plant life in Antarctica is lichen, then moss. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

The bergs would hide behind each other, each as fascinating as the previous. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά #mbfeb

First landing spot on πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ά for me was Fort Point on Greenwich Island, which was claimed by penguins. #mbfeb
