The March of the Penguins

Windy Welcome
The folks at 75 Degrees South are Visiting the penguins:
After nearly two weeks of delays due to bad weather, yesterday we finally managed to get down to visit the penguins. Five of us set off in one of the base sno-cats for the 14km drive to Windy Bay, a sheltered cove which is home to a large emperor penguin colony.
Too cool. 75 Degrees South is an Antarctic base, and the folks are gradually digging out of their winter quarters. I guess this is spring break.

Check out the other pictures. It's just too cool.
