McMurdo From The Air

McMurdo Station is on Ross Island, which lies to the south in this photo.

This is McMurdo Station from the air. I've always thought that it looks a lot like Truckee.

This is Mt. Erebus. It is the southernmost active volcano. McMurdo lies on its doorstep. You can see a small plume of smoke from the mountain.
