Lonewolf Nunataks

It blew hard all Friday night (~30 knots) but by early morning (Dec 18) the winds had subsided. John and Braydon picked us up with their Twin Otter and we flew north and west of our camp to the Lonewolf Nunataks. These nunataks are the farthest north we sampled out of CTAM and are actually slightly closer to McMurdo than CTAM. It was an exceptionally beautiful day on the edge of the Polar Plateau and the Byrd Névé. With our level of dress, however, it was too hot much of the day—and perhas with temps as high at 20°F.
