From near the top of Crater Hill, with McMurdo and
the Royal Society Range in the background.
Crater Hill is the highest point near the town, so, of
course it has radio equipment on it, and we seem to make regular trips up there.
The top of the hill is about 1000 feet above sea level. If we're lucky and a snowcat is available, we can drive most the way, and then do the hike for the last 200 yards, and 200 feet of elevation.
It was a good day, and the end of the week. We work a 54 hour work week. Six days of 9 hours per day, 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM, with an hour off for lunch.
