Three trails in Zion National Park from this past October. Zion is an incredible place I hope to get back to soon.

|2009 Winter-Over Crew - South Pole, Antarctica|
|The Moon and Aurora above the South Pole Stations.|

|Meteor and Aurora above MAPO and the South Pole Telescope.|
One weekend I decided to hike out to the South Pole Telescope in order to get some photos during a calibration period when the telescope remains motionless. On the way out to the telescope I decided to pause for one photo of the MAPO building and got lucky with a meteor streaking through the Milky Way.

And one of my favorites of me checking out the instruments while the LIDAR does a calibration.

I recently reformatted my computer and began pulling in and re-organizing my giant catalogues of photos. I started going over the pictures from when I wintered over at the South Pole and especially those of the Old Dome Station. Construction of the giant Elevated Station was completed during my year at the Pole while the Dome was used for food storage. The following summer the National Science Foundation and Raytheon Polar decided to finally demolish it. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to photograph this historic and iconic building during its last winter.

It was looking doubtful right down to the moment I started hiking up the trail to set up my tripods. Thick pockets of clouds continued to linger on the front range right up through sunset, but the Canadian astronomy forecast held true and they began to break right on the mark.

Video from the first day of a 26" storm at Wolf Creek Ski Area. It was pretty amazing there with 16" on the 5AM snow report and an additional 10" during the day!
