painting in the Dry Valleys

You can watch me painting in the posted video as scientists Alex Michaud and Luigi Michaud (no relation!) chip for water below the ice at Marr Ponds in the, Taylor Valley, Dry Valleys, Antarctica.


  1. Beautiful pics Elise! How cold is it? Just wondering what the temps are like.

  2. 20's....sometimes windy, but you get used to it.
    Occasionally above freezing.

  3. Happy New Year!
    what?!? 20's. pretty bizzare that it's about that cold in New York. Just got back from Florida and the highs were mid 40's...
    hope everything doesn't melt away before you get to document it.
    love the paintings!
