Extreme Photo of the Week Photograph by Mike Schirf “I love the skiing down the best, but I don't love the skinning up,” says 11-year-old Lilliana Libecki, seen here with her dad, Mike, on their recent sailing-skiing expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula in front of Paradise Bay and a colony of Gentoo penguins. It was Lilliana’s very first expedition with her dad, a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Expeditions Council grantee, and veteran of 50-some remote expeditions. “I will never ever forget the skiing and icebergs and how curious and unafraid the penguins were,” Liliana says. “It was so marvelous.” When Mike returned from Antarctica in 2008 with photos of skiing and snowboarding on the continent, Lilli, then five years old, was inspired.
