Map of Fryxell Basin
Hey everyone.  I realized I am now throwing out all of these arbitrary stream names as if you know where they are.  I thought it'd be nice to give you some context.  Here is a zoomed in map I made of the Fryxell Basin.  I apologize it isn't quite as nice as...

Things are Melting
With this recent stretch of warm weather, most of the streams in Taylor Valley have begun to run, and they are flowing at rates that are already greater than the peak flows we saw last year.  The warm weather has been surprising to us, but the veterans down...
