A quad trip up to the amphitheatre last Sunday produced some spectacular photos.
We had to check out the skiway condition just off the station and also progress on the Plough Island skiway further along.
From there a visit to the new mums and baby Weddell seals was in order to check their progress. All looks well in the maternity ward as you can see.
After a lunch at Brookes Hut it was up to the amphitheatre just on the edge of the snow plateau. Rob had not been there before so it was a great treat for him.
The biggest surprise was the ice was not milky blue as seen in the past but a crystal clear with snow and air bubbles. Also there was not a breath of wind and the sun was up, a real treat for VLZ old hats, Rob and Steve.
