Brown Bluff and Duse Bay

Dec 13, 2017 - National Geographic Orion

For many today, stepping ashore at Brown Bluff marked their seventh and final continent. While technically one could walk to the South Pole from this point it would not be an easy hike, so sticking to the much more favorable route our Expedition Leader has developed will be drastically preferable. With weather that couldn’t be more accommodating, we even found time to kayak along the fast ice edge after lunch before heading even further south for more adventures to come.

About the Author

Ian Strachan

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

One steady constant in Ian’s life has been the ocean. Born by the rocky shores of mid-coast Maine, his family repatriated to far north Queensland in Australia early on in his life where he became a dual-citizen and sparked his passion for exploring new environments. Living only an hour away from the Great Barrier Reef served to direct, if not focus, the exhilaration of discovery and set him on his current path. Returning to native soil for education, Ian was fascinated by altogether too many subjects, leaving him with a bachelor’s degree from Wheaton College in Psychobiology, focusing on animal behavior and perception, and with minors in Astronomy, History, and Environmental Science.
