Glacier Hike

Keri Nelson, the Palmer Station administrator, lead a small group of us on a snow shoe hike up the Marr Ice Piedmont Glacier behind the station yesterday. It was a crystal clear blue bird day on the hike, with stunning views of Arthur Harbor, the Marr Piedmont, the station, and the surrounding land and seascapes.
