The Flight to Antarctica

I have been here in Antarctica for over a month now and it is clearly time to catch up on posting some photos from the time so far.  We arrived here four days before the sun rose for the first time of the Antarctic summer.  We were flown down on a Boeing C-17 Globemaster based out of McChord AFB in Washington.  Unfortunately there are not a lot of windows on this plane so I don't have any photos of Antarctica from the air.
