In January 2013, Dale fulfilled a lifetime dream when she boarded the ship Ortelius for a 32-day expedition to the Ross Sea in Antarctica. Led by Australian mountaineer, Greg Mortimer, the group of adventurers experienced the beauty and awe of the southern continent; stepped into the huts of Scott and Shackleton; visited the Taylor Dry Valley; sat among curious penguins on Macquarie Island. And so much more. Read of her adventure, view over 300 photos and 14 video clips in Why Antarctica?
