Bill and I spent most of January guiding in Antarctica. It is great to be back home but we had a fantastic trip to the Antarctic Peninsula working for Cheeseman Ecology Safari. One of the highlights for me was seeing an Arctic Tern. I’m humbled to think of those little birds flying from Alaska’s tundra all the way to Antarctica and back each year.
I was too busy driving a zodiak to take many pictures. Fortunately our friend, who also joins us in Alaska each summer, took this great video one evening at an enormous penguin colony near Antarctic Sound.
I’m back in the Arctic Wild office and busy planning next summers trips. We just have a few spots left on our June trips. Call soon and we can find you the perfect trip for next summer.
