To Castle Rock Then!
Sometimes, McMurdo ain't such a bad place...
Grab some friends, and go for a hike!
(Of course you have to check out with the firehouse, makes sure you have a radio, and be sure to check back in before they send the search and rescue...)

|Eric on the approach. Felt good to get my feet back on some real rock!|
|From here, we can see everything! Mt Discovery in the background, McMurdo is actually hiding off in the distance between some of the exposed rocky knobs. Beautiful day, but severely windy.|
