Photos from the Journey Back

Flying to Christchurch over the Southern Alps on the South Island of western New Zealand.

A plot near the entrance to the gardens.

My favorite path at the Christchurch Botanical Gardens

Whittling away five hours on our flight to Antarctica.

Small ice chunks in the ocean below as we approach Antarctica.

Much larger ice chunks as we get closer to Antarctica.

I think that is pancake ice.

Icebergs and land (covered in ice) as we first reach the continent.

Small icy mountains.

Icy mountains.

More icy mountains.

Big ice mountains.

Even more icy mountains.
