In Queen Maud Land in Antarctica, the sea pack ice stretches off to the north for over 100 kilometers from the Princess Astrid Coast, near where I was staying. But closest to the coast, the wind and sea push the ice into the continent, causing it buckle and refreeze into these enormous (tens of meters high) and surreal, undulating mountains of ice that look like a violent, stormy ocean frozen in time. There are also jagged peaks and ice caves in every shade of blue, and crevasses, small lakes, and streams, all of which we were lucky enough to spend a day climbing around and through.
