(l-r) Ashley Yunker, Tom Alves, and Michelle Davis take in the scene at Paradise Bay. The three hiked to the top of a small foothill with the rest of the expedition to take in the view of the bay and surrounding islands.
After hiking to the top of a foothill on Paradise Bay, Patrick Schwing and Professor Hammerschmidt solved a team building exercise challenge on how to get back down the quickest. Not only did they make a speedy descent but they also found the ride exhilarating.
Tom Alves waits for the next zodiac from the ship and the rest of his team mates on the steps of the Argentinian Almirante Brown Station in Paradise Bay. The research station is in operation during the summer only but with economic issues in Argentina many bases are not being fully staffed.
