This morning we explored the stunning Neko Harbor. Neko is a western inlet of the Antarctic Peninsula that consistently offers breathtaking expanse of peaks and glaciers surrounding the area; it is also the location of a thriving gentoo penguin nesting site. Nests having been set high up on an overlooking hillside, the penguins designate pathways for their frequent and collective venturing back and forth for food in the coastal waters below. We landed ashore to get a closer look, and it was a true treat to watch the gentoos walk in tandem up and down their highways.
