for now: montana skies









I leave for my second season in Antarctica in six days.  Somehow this has completely and utterly snuck up on me, and tonight involved a walk up the mountains behind the house (with some whiny coyotes a little too close for comfort) during which there was some venting and some verbal stressing.  But it's good.

Believe it or not, Antarctica is going to be a chance to settle down for a while after six fantastic months of being on the move.  I haven't consecutively been in one place for over two weeks since... probably Antarctica.  And this year Kev and I will have our own room, a place of our own.  Quite the upgrade from the 6'x6' corner we had last year, divided off from a room shared with three others with sheets.

Things are good, but things are busy.  For now, here are some photos of the glorious Montana sky and its many different faces.
