In today’s journal entry, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos that didn’t make it in my other journal entries.

    Did you know that scientists from other countries help each other out and share knowledge. Here is a picture of the flags of Greenland, the United States, and Denmark,

    Summit Station is a camp run be the United States. The flags of Greenland and Denmark are also flying. Did you know that Greenland is a part of the country of Denmark. But, Denmark has allowed the people of Greenland to make their own rules, with Denmark providing some assistance.

    The flag of Greenland is beautiful. The disk represents the Sun reflecting off a field of ice. That is a pretty fitting design, don’t you think?

    Doesn't this look like a painting?

    The sunlight is bouncing off the cloud in the background, but the ice sheet appears gray because a cloud that you can’t see is blocking the sunlight from hitting the ice.

    These sleds were a big help when it came time to pack up.

    Bocce Ball

    In our spare time, we sometimes played bocce ball. The object of the game is to get your ball closet to the small white ball.

    It can be a little challenging when your ball lands in a snow drift. It took us 20 minutes to find Q’s ball.

    The sky was a vibrant blue with no clouds. I just had to take a picture to try to remember it.

    I am going to miss this place.
