Weddell Seal in Antarctica

Antarctica is among the most vivid travel memories I have. The immensity of everything there and the total isolation make it a scary, yet alluring place to visit.

One place I visited in Antarctica was Crystal Sound. This sound had some of the most interesting looking ice formations and icebergs on the entire trip, it also had some friendly-looking Weddell Seals hanging about.

These seals live further south than any other seal in the world, being totally at home in the cold, icy waters of Antarctica.
