Kukri Hills

Quick post, very limited bandwidth from Lake Hoare in the Taylor Valley. We hiked from Lake Bonney to Lake Hoare today, a 10 mile hike with 2400 feet of elevation gain because we took the high road over the Nussbaum Riegel. An amazing hike with the most varied topography and surface I have ever seen anywhere. More to come when I get back to McMurdo.

Update: many more photographs of Taylor Valley on my website here
