My first trip to Antarctica was a summer assignment in 1963 with the U. S. Weather Bureau through the National Science Foundation. It was a summer only tour in a penguin colony at a joint United States and New Zealand station on the Hallett peninsula on the Ross Sea. I was evacuated from there to New Zealand on a U. S. coast guard ice breaker after a major fire destroyed our buildings. The temperatures at Haslett ranged from plus 35 F to minus 40 F leaving it snow free in the summer.
About a year later I was back in at the Byrd station for the winter replacing a medically evacuated supervisor. Temperatures there went down to minus 100 degrees. I only include a few photos from Byrd because of the lack of scenery there.
In 2013 Betty and I returned and cruised along the coast for four days. Some new photos are at the end of this page.
