Antarctica: a Year on Ice

After a dentist appointment, I decided to watch this film on Netflix.  Highly recommended.
Spectacular photography! A great story and well edited.  Check it out.

Should be some exciting imagery coming our way from the "dwarf" planet.

See the BBC report.  And the images from NASA.

Perhaps one of the easiest places to get to do "last chance tourism" since a regular fleet of cruise ships pass through the area every summer. Pretty soon you will be able to sail into Canada!

See a short video on YouTube that I just got around to producing at this link.

NERR joined SORP this past Spring

Like the alphabet soup?  Conference highlights and such are found on their website.  Previous SORP conferences are also found at this site.  The Northeastern Recreation and Research Symposium has been around since 1989!
