I know that many of you may feel like this is a picture of your neighborhood, but I certainly hope that's not the case! I mean, there's cold...and then there's COLD! This is , without a doubt, the latter! I hope you are a lot warmer than you would be in this location!
Ice Towers & Caves of Mount Erebus
Mount Erebus is Antarctica’s second largest volcano and has been observed to be continually active since 1972. Atop the mountain are a number of ice towers formed as a result of steam emissions from volcanic activity. Many of the ice towers constantly emit steam giving them the appearance of chimneys jutting out of the icy volcano’s frozen sides. In addition to these chimney-like pillars the volcanic mountain is home to a variety of ice caves, formed naturally in a number of ways, all resulting in glowing blue, eerily cavernous subterranean chambers.
This is a good example of why living in the deep south is good! Snow and ice is pretty in a picture, but I don't want to get up close and personal with any of it, ya know?
Coffee in the kitchen again this morning. Even these pictures made me shiver! As you can tell, I don't do cold very well!
