Photos From The Ranch

(from Cass)

Our huts have been completely covered in snow during these storms. [These are the same storms that trapped me in McMurdo for almost a week - Kathi] This photo is of the huts after someone came out to plow the ranch. The snow was so heavy it began to deflect, causing the water in our dive holes (and holes under the huts) to rise a bit.

Our penguins are doing very well. They are diving quite a bit and appear to be eating well (from the amount of guano we have to clean up every day!). I have included some pictures of penguins starting a dive and exiting the hole,

as well as a photo of two buddy penguins!
