Wilkes Station, Antarctica.

I am Currently doing a season down at Casey Station in Antarctica. Working with the Australian Antarctic Division for the summer. Over the bay, 1.5 miles North of here, is Wilkes. We use it as a field hut for trips away for the night, or weekend.

Wilkes station was established as a research base on the 29th of January 1957 by the USA. On the 7th of February 1959 it was transferred over to Australian control and used as their station until they occupied the new Casey station in 1969.

Here are some pics i have from one of these trips.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_hagg_transport_dec13_webres  The Hagglund, our transport over to Wilkes.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_hilton_hut_inside_dec13_webres  Inside the Wilkes Hilton, the accommodation. antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_hilton_hut_dec13_webres  Outside view of the Wilkes Hilton.  antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_crates_snow_dec13_webres  Some of the many things left behind as the were.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_landscape_dome_ocean_dec13_webres  A weather dome, like most other buildings, left to be.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_landscape_abandoned_station_dec13_webres  Most of the buildings are covered and filled with snow and ice.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_landscape_3xpenguins_dec13_webres  Some Penguins, following us as we explore.antarctica_rorygatfied_wilkes_landscape_dome_dec13_webres A view of the abandoned buildings and towers.

Adelaide City Dirt Octoberfest 2013

 Octoberfest Jam at Adelaide CIty Dirt was on yesterday. Here are my photos from the day. The first image is from early on in the morning before the crowds came down. Being Australia’s only public jumps park in a city is a very cool thing, and the builders have done an amazing job. citydirt_empty_october_2013Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bnw_3table_webresAdelaide_citydirt_OCT13_cornerhip_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_backflip_over_rider_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_360look_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bradmas_superman_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_3dip_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_3click_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_bnw_tbog_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_onefoot_onehand_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_onefoot_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_hip_train_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_snm_webres Adelaide_citydirt_OCT13_nohands_webres

The final photo dump from Australia’s Northwest.

It’s been a journey, with a start, and soon an end. With loads of variety, we’ve enjoyed our time there. Here’s to a new start and a great life, continued onwards and upwards. Cheers.
