Huffin’ for stuffin’
The first two-day weekend of the year has come and gone, and what a weekend it was. Kyle and I were able to spend (American) Thanksgiving in McMurdo. We caught up with old friends, ate ourselves silly, and managed to bust out a 5k in a respectable time. I think we were both thankful for the break.
After recovering from our morning trot, we took part in a fantastic walk along the pressure ridges that form where the McMurdo Ice Shelf pushes into Ross Island. We were blessed with sun and warm weather, and a beautiful view of Mt. Erebus.
The rest of the evening was spent dancing the night away. It’s a harsh continent.
