In search of landing spots on the coast

05 January 2015 | Mikkelsen Harbour, Trinity Island
During Sunday night we crossed over to the Antarctic Peninsula and followed the coastline from Cape Kjellman around Charcot Bay and Whittle Peninsula all the way to Cape Andreas, in order to find a landing spot for our first expedition skiing trip. The coast is very unaccommodating - no chance to whatsoever to get ashore between rugged black rock walls and huge white glaciers producing house size icebergs like ice cube machines...
After 15 hours of searching we found a spot to land on, just south of Cape Andreas from which we'll attempt Langley Peak on Wednesday.

We crossed over to Trinity Island to spend the night in a bay on the south side where we were fighting off little drifting icebergs, called growlers and bergy bits from hitting the boat.
