Not a bad “office” view, eh?

Joe Hurley, Thule Operations Coordinator, recently checked in and sent us these images of life at Thule Air base in Greenland.

Joe reports that June has been a mix of high winds and rain with temperatures climbing into the 40s (Farenheit). This translates into an open river and MUD.

The mosquitos have not yet arrived, prep work continues, and the field season….is up and running.
