4am Snowpit

Have you ever woken up at 4am and had a strong desire to put on a ton of warm layers, grab a shovel and scientific equipment, and head out into the Yukon night to dig a snowpit?  I’m guessing not, in which case, I present the above photo to give you an idea of what such a scene would look like.  Since the research I was working on dealt with melting and refreezing snow, we had to do some snowpits in the middle of the night to capture the refreezing part.  We didn’t stray too far from our cabin, but considering we were still pretty far out in the middle of nowhere, it was still pretty cool and slightly eerie at the same time.
