Brisk winds whipped the chill factor to 11 degrees and below as shifting ice, spastic snowstorms and remote conditions readjusted itineraries daily on the Antarctica expedition.
But no one seemed to mind when Mother Nature took the helm.
Every unexpected change created unbelievable moments.
Around every corner, ice sculpture masterpieces floated in a sea of silence.
Lone penguins stood sentry on icebergs and peered toward the sea.
I long to return to Antarctica some day.
Perhaps nowhere on earth can you better understand an important life truth:
What lies below the surface is often the most important.
