It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times" - A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens

I'll post the major details tomorrow, but today has been one of the best and worst of my Antarctica experience. Best - I took a helicopter to Mt. Erebus (our local active volcano) to remove communications equipment. I hiked up to the crater (I think). Worst - my two favorite people down here who filled my heart and soul with goodness and greatness every day have left the ice. If you ever have the chance, they will also fill yours. Their floating operas have moved onto to play in another port, but their individual songs keep playing in my head. Hope they come to a town near you soon (Idaho and Olympic Peninsula).
