In honor of the 50th Anniversary of a holiday that's near and dear to my heart, I'm here to share a silver lining as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. With a tie to Antarctic research too! Enjoy!

Thanks Elaine for posting a journal about climate change and Earth Day! I love your video!! So creative! I've been reading a lot of how places around the world are seeing their mountains for the first time in long time due to reduced pollution. It's amazing what an impact we can have on our environment and I hope that we think about how we lived pre-COVID and how we can walk more and drive less.

Thanks again for a great journal!

Hope you are hanging in there while our expeditions are "on ice" #dadjokes

You too! It's a bummer not to be there this year but it just builds the anticipation for next! :)
