Ghost of Christmas (long) past

Ghost of Christmas (long) past
From an old slide and being reposted with a better copy. This is the "Spring Trippers" group photo on Christmas Eve, 50 years ago (1966). We were on a four month mapping trip, at this stage some 200km inland from Mawson station, Antarctica.

Merry Christmas, everyone. Here's a song to go with the season.

George.....

I love this photo. I got a huge empathic whammy even just through the screen.

Do you ever wish for those days... I could understand if you did.

Just know this wasnt just "any picture"
