    Hello all, today i took a short walk to Capt Scotts hut that was used during
    the Discovery Expedition of 1902, a Short walk from McMurdo is where the hut
    sets, nestled against the hills that now surrounds the area we call the ice
    pier. This is where the ships offload our fuel and a years worth of supplies
    in January.

    The hut is eerie, walking to the door you see a 100 year old seal carcass,
    and inside the smell of seal blubber lingers through out the rooms filled
    with boxes of goods from dog biscuits to baking powder to aid the men of the
    early expeditions of Antarctica.

    Some of the pictures i took in Black and White, for effect.. its hard to
    explain how things look, this is my second time here and it was just as
    mystic as it was last year, its like going back in time.. even though the
    blubber burning stove hasn't shown a flame in 90 years the courage and the
    devotion of the early explorers still lingers on…

    This hut is maintained my the good work of the Antarctic Heritage Trust of
    New Zealand.
