Out to Sea on the Ice
Our team spent a few hours out on snowmobiles to check on a colleague's prototype seismic sensor and go see about the visibility at Point Barrow. The most exciting piece of this adventure is that my goggles didn't fog up and I could see well for the entire journey. This was refreshing after last years' snafu with goggles and instantly freezing fog.
The second most exciting part was seeing a small polar bear from about 100 yards away. It was a very quick view as it was running pretty fast and disappeared far away from us onto the sea ice north of the Point.
