Amazing photos

Hi Josh-

Wonderful photos you are taking!! The Dry Valleys are so photogenic. You are lucky to see so many different parts of them with your team and experiment! I wonder how many nights you will spend out there, or are you mostly doing day trips?

Have a great time! Lucy

Hi Lucy,
Most of our trips are day trips, This may be my only overnight trip in
the valleys. Because of weather a one night trip is turning into at
least three nights which is great for me.

Mummified Animals

How many mummified animals have you found and how long would you estimate they have been there?

Mummified Seals

Hi Brent, I saw 5 or 6 seals. Some of these mummies are hundreds of years old. Very little decomposition happens because it is so cold and dry. There are typically signs of erosion on the bodies.
