Scott’s Hut, Ross Island, 30 January 2012, 15:24. When we arrived offshore, a group of conservators were just leaving after spending two weeks on final restoration and conservation work on this historic hut. Ice conditions prevented landing Zodiaks near the hut, but a landing was possible on the other side of this point of land. The people on the hillside are hiking in from the landing spot. I chose not to make the landing and the walk; instead I stayed on board and enjoyed the view of the sea, the ice, the mountain, the hut, and my more energetic and fit fellow passengers. Mount Erebus is just to the left out of the picture.
