Yankee Harbour and Deception island

three hours over the crest of the island to meet the ship, or to take a shorter hike from Teléfon Bay up to a scenic viewpoint of an interior caldera. You guessed it: we chose the shorter hike, particularly since the wind was blowing at about 35 mph, and it was raining.  On the way up, our faces were scoured with blown bits of either ice, or small volcanic grit (either way, they felt the same). Suffice it to say, I won’t be needing any micro-derm abrasion any time soon!

By the time we hit the crest, Jim was dreaming of a Manhattan back in the bar on-board. As we waited for the Zodiacs to take us back, he reported that the “Manhattan Project was on schedule”!

Tomorrow morning should begin with more Zodiac cruising.
