Castle Rock Hike

I wanted to get one last hike up to Castle Rock in before I left Antarctica. A group of us hiked up last Sunday. It took Jenny, Rick, Evan, Nicole and I about four and a half hours.

On top. You can see the channel in the distance cut by the icebreaker Oden to get into McMurdo Sound.

Jenny, Rick and Nicole. Nicole is a Kiwi down here with the New Zealand army.

View of Mt. Erebus, an active volcano, from the top.

Heading home with, I believe, Mt. Discovery in the distance.

View of town with open water.
