Postcards From Antarctica

January 14, 2005 : (l-r) Craig Altemose and Brett Buckingham inspect a 50 million year old sedimentary rock at Brown Bluff on the Antarctic Peninsula. The rock is home to two lichens found in Antarctica and also shows volcanic cobbles. The rock greeted the two as they stepped ashore on the continent. Photography by Chris Hildreth
