Photo blog: Ice, Ice, Baby - Road trippin'

This summer, I’ll be doing research on the ecosystems of Northeast Iceland through a grant from the National Science Foundation. After an intense 12 hour day of field work, the research team and I completed the data collection for my experiment. We rewarded ourselves with a long weekend off and a road trip to the south, Travolta style.

Some guy told me that this is why they call it Iceland. I’m still not sure whether or not I believe him.

The combination of choppy seas and all around clumsiness limited us to iPhone selfies on our whale watching trip.

My camera made its way back out when we were able to make a stop on some sturdy ground at Puffin Island, home to more than 200,000 clowns of the sea.
