The team is back at Union Glacier, hunkered down in high winds. The Russian cargo jet that will fly them back to South America lands on a blue ice runway (think the world’s biggest hockey rink!). It can land in mild winds, but not the big gusts that have been buffeting camp.
The team is sheltered for the night in their tents and will await a weather call in the morning. The forecast does not look great for flying tomorrow, but the forecast is not always correct. Let’s keep our fingers crossed for slackening winds and send warm wishes southward to our chilly friends.
