Taylor Valley – 29th February 2020

The day began just like the previous one had ended: windy and grey. Very windy indeed, and very grey.

But it was quite a bit better on the west side of the McMurdo Sound. The sun was coming out, and the wind was calming down. We passed through all stages of sea ice formation as we approached the Transantarctic Mountains, from grease ice through various kinds of pancake ice and finally into solid ice floes.

Soon the helicopters were ready and we started flying into Taylor Valley, which is one of the famous McMurdo Dry Valleys. We managed to give everybody the opportunity to set a foot ashore there – a short but very sweet walk near Canada Glacier. Great!
