We flew back to McMurdo today. We had finished the work we needed to do during our first week in the field. Now, we're back at "home" here at McMurdo station. Here's a nice view from the helicopter.
Look at what came in the mail while we were in the field! Elizabeth and I received Christmas cards from our friend Bob! He made the cards, and drew the artwork himself. They're totally awesome! Now Elizabeth and I have the prettiest desk space in the lab, because we can decorate it with Christmas lizards.
Now that we're finally back from our first week of field work, it's time to shower, eat non-dehydrated food, and rest!
