Memories from a different life

A short walk from McMurdo Station down to Hut Point will wake a scientist from the laboratory spell that sets in under fluorescent lighting and well-aligned bottles and return them to a time before cell phones and wireless connections.

Our first glimpse of the Hut that Scott and his crew established over a century ago.

The animals had a better look at the inside...



Our shadows were long in the circling sun.

Also,there are many others from OSU here... Kathy Welch (I have a link to her blog on the sidebar) and Dr. Peter Webb, Katie Johnson, and Cristina Milan---(part of the 200+ Andrill crew drilling a long, long sediment core to explore the climate history of the distant past.)
I've been running into folks left and right in the galley, coffee house, and lab....

I can't wait to hear more. I love the little animals you took with you from the kids. I am sure they love the pics, too. Be careful, dear one. And have fun. Love, Aunt Rhonda

You weren't kidding about taking photos of the mascots. The kids will be so happy! I love you and am so excited for you and glad to know you made it "down south" safely. (Gosh, and I thought you were just going to Georgia or something).
