Cape Armitage Hike
The day before we left McMurdo for WAIS, we took a hike on to the sea
around Cape Armitage.
This is McMurdo, in all it's glory. Mount Erebus, which is not
within McMurdo, is in the back ground. Observation Hill, to the
this next picture. Or hike takes us to the right in this picture.
Obs hill for short.
Mt. Erebus started to plume as we were hiking.
A wider angle of the last picture. What a beautiful sky!
McMurdo is behind
the hills in the center of this photo.
Scott base, run by the Kiwis. (New Zealanders) It is about
3 miles from McMurdo.
We visited their souvenir shop, but are not allowed to visit anything
without an invitation.
Another great shot of Mt. Erebus, this one from Scott base.
