Camp

Hiking up a ridge high above camp, we got a fantastic view of our camp at the toe of the glacier and the edge of the lake. The melted out margins of the permanently frozen lake were a brilliant blue, and our tents a cheerful yellow. In addition to the bluish cook hut, labs, and tool sheds, and the green Jamesway storage tent/shed, you can see the new modern solar panels that were installed this season to replace the 25-year-old NASA experiments that had been powering the camp. In the foreground, you can see the edge of a ventifact, a rock sculpted into wavy shapes by the wind.
