As National Geographic Explorer continued to sail into the New Year here in Antarctica, we arrived at James Ross Island. The beach was laden with ice, and we hiked into the epic landscape. On our way through the Erebus and Terror Gulf, we encountered a pod of killer whales in the middle of a hunt for penguins. We then arrived at Devil Island. Aboard our flotilla of Zodiacs, we toured the coastline to observe Adelie penguins. The sights, sounds, and smells of the colony were memorable.
