Observation Hill

Currently working on a post about Sea Ice Safety–for some reason I decided to whip up some diagrams, so it’s taking a bit longer than expected. In the meantime, here are some pictures from Thursday afternoon when my advisor and I hiked up Observation Hill.

Observation Hill as it appears from the middle of McMurdo.

In the foreground, the cross commemorating Scott and his men; in the background, my advisor and also the Sun.

It was particularly exciting to see the Sun because, from most of McMurdo, it hasn't yet been visible.

It is certainly a privilege to be here during one of those brief times when the sun actually rises and sets every day.
