Passing the Tall Ship "Bark Europa"
Lemaire Channel, Antarctica

Distance is crazy in Antarctica. You don't realize how huge things are around you, unless there is a seal or bird to give it perspective. We were running through the Lemaire Channel, and I saw this tiny boat in the distance. It looked tiny because it was beside a huge glacier, and I thought it was a replica of a boat that went down. Well, that little boat turned out to be a Tall Ship that travels around the world. My first clue was the people hanging off the riggings way up in the air. I put this picture up to give you a sense of the size of the glaciers that tower over this big ship.
