Mt Vinson

In December 2006, Bill Straka went to Antarctica as a member of the 40th Anniversary American Antarctic Expedition. The Expedition included four members of the original 1966 American Antarctic Expedition plus a son and a daughter of two of the original members who could not make it.

The original expedition made the first ascent of Mt. Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica, and other peaks of the Vinson Massif and Sentinel Range. One of the goals was to place a plaque on the summit, honoring the first ascent party. Bill will show images of the expedition, along with images taken in Patagonia after the return to Chile.
