|Self-portrait at the South Pole by Galen Rowell|
I received a postcard US-2229481 yesterday from Texas. It features a self-portrait among the flags of the Antarctic Treaty nations at the South Pole in 1992 by Galen A. Rowell. Galen, born in Oakland, CA on August 23, 1940, was an accomplished wilderness photographer and avid mountain climber. Unfortunately, he was killed in a plane accident near the Inyo County Airport in Bishop, California on August 11, 2002.
