Day 10b: Heading North

(This is part of a series of re-posts from my trip to Antarctica in 2009)

We made it through the Gullet and while there’s still sea ice the huge close mountains are largely gone. We’ve essentially returned to the Drake Passage and are heading north to tomorrow’s landing spot.

After dinner I did a quick pass through the 518 photos I took during the 5 hours after lunch. OMG. I count 19 that are cool and half of those are absolutely incredible.

Oh, and there’s 402 photos from Horseshoe Island this morning that also need culling. I did a quick pass through and one of them is quite likely the best photograph I have ever taken.
