Winds have finally changed back to allowable travel conditions, so we’re back in business! In the morning we brought the drill back to the site and got everything hooked up. By early morning we were off and scanning again. Today we were focused around 85 meters where we have been seeing multiple spectral features from early point clouds. Later in the evening we saw some awesome meteorological phenomena at Summit Station (see pictures below)!
