Antarctica Diary, Day 7, Part 1: Lemaire Channel, “The Kodak Gap”

Adam: Waking up today, we got a big surprise. Sun! That’s right, the ominous clouds of the past few days have lifted and it feels like a totally new landscape. Today consisted of two excursions and a special location that deserves its own post.

The Lemaire Channel is one of the most breathtaking locations in the entire world. The seven mile channel has been nicknamed “The Kodak Gap”, for good reason. It’s as if a gigantic flood inundated the Rocky Mountains and you were left with majestic mountains on either side. Unfortunately, my words can’t do the Lemaire Channel justice, but I hope my pictures will.

Welcome to th4 Lemaire Channel

The icebergs looked like glowing jewels

Be sure to pay attention to your surroundings....

.....or else you'll miss the seals floating by!
