West Lake Bonney, Taylor Valley, Antarctica
Reporting from Blood Falls Basecamp
Now that we’ve completed three successful sonde missions, we took today off. We have been working 12 to 14 hours per day out here and now that things are going well, it is time to rest. We stayed up late last night watching a Bruce Lee flick, so most folks slept in a bit and then we all went to Lake Bonney Camp to lounge about in the Jamesway. Leah baked cookies, since there is an oven at the camp, and we each had the chance to take a shower of sorts by using a solar shower bag filled with water we heated on the stove.
