Posts From Antartica: Penguins, Seals, Whales & Glaciers

Longtime Los Alamos residents Kimber and Rob Heineman who now reside off the hill spotted this lone penguin during a recent trip to Antarctica. At the southernmost continent and site of the South Pole, Antarctica is a virtually uninhabited, ice-covered landmass. Most cruises to the continent visit the Antarctic Peninsula, which stretches toward South America. It’s known for the Lemaire Channel and Paradise Harbor, striking, iceberg-flanked passageways, and Port Lockroy, a former British research station turned museum. The peninsula’s isolated terrain also shelters rich wildlife, including many penguins. Source: wikipedia. Photo by Kimber Heineman
