Snowy Island & Deception Island, 12/27/2021, National Geographic Resolution

No more ice for us today! We left mainland Antarctica and made our way to the South Shetland Islands where wildlife and history awaited us. Our first stop was Snowy Island, full of ellies (aka southern elephant seals) and their pups, lichen and grasses, and the nesting sites of southern giant petrels. After enjoying the antics of the ellies, we made our way to Deception Island where we sailed into the heart of the caldera of an active volcano. Steam rose from the beach, enshrouding the remains of a whaling station in an aura of solemn mystery.
