Castle Rock - A Sunday Walk.
Last night during the Real Audio broadcast, an audience member asked if I had gone to Castle Rock, well today I did. It was a pretty lousy day too. The winds were strong and the snow was blowing. But we went anyway. You have to go in groups and you must check out at the fire station with a radio. It is a 7 mile loop that takes about six hours or less. We stopped half way at an emergency shelter because for a brief moment the snow was blinding. In the shelter we started the stove and had tea, ate a few of the left over crackers and headed back through Scott Base to McMurdo. A Sunday walk.
Thanks to the students and others who helped out at my school to present Antarctica night, and special thanks to Dr. Chris Matthews, Gary and Susan Klinkhammer who gave wonderful lectures about their experiences in Antarctica.
