Neko Harbor, Antarctica

Neko Harbor, in Andvord Bay, was our Antarctic continental landing site. The site is home to a massive glacier that regularly calves into the waters of Andvord Bay, as well as a small colony of Gentoo Penguins and a small emergency hut with supplies mantained by the Argentine government.
