After taking on fuel we are steaming to our last set of stations at 72N, 133W. This route will be through the last ice of the cruise.

    Huge floe
    We had to go 13 miles out of our way to go around this huge floe.

    I am fascinated by the ice so I am spending the last hours possible observing the ice. Many have remarked on how much less ice there is up here compared to recent years. I want to be sure I see all I can.

    This journal has two short movies about ice.
