Back in McMurdo

So I am back in McMurdo for one week and this is what I saw.
I only got to see two of them, but it was pretty neat!

The South Pole from the Air

I was chosen to go on the Aerial Photo Mission and this is what I shot...
Above is the Flight Deck, where us fuelies work.
This is "Summer Camp", where half of the population of South Pole lives in the summer. I live in Jamesway 4, which is the bottom left unit.

The new elevated South Pole Station.

This is a shot of the "Dome" that was the main station from the early 70's till just a few years ago. Next to the Dome is the new elevated South Pole Station where most activites, business and meals(most important) take place.

Have you ever thought to yourself, "I am in the middle of nowhere!" That was the first thing I was reminded by when we got up in that plane. I have been at the South Pole since October 27, but very much had forgotten where we are or are not until I got up in the air to see our little station.

Frosty Me.

My black & white series of the South Pole.

LC-130 taking off.

Two Piston Bullies coming to get us after a night of camping a couple
of kilometers away from the station.
"Fuel Arch", with a capacity of 450,00 gallons.
We have to have it full by close of station for winter.

Offloading fuel from a LC-130.

Two LC-130's on deck at the South Pole.

Living Situation

This is my bedroom. Jamesway 4 Room 6. Looks cozy, I know. It's a mere 6' x 8' in floor space.

This is Jamesway 4 from the outside. It is Antarctica.
Why not wear orange is the real question here....

This is down in the LO arch. This is where medical and other facilites were located before they built the new station. Now there is some remodeling going on. Those two snow hills came in through a hole in the arch over the winter.

They said it would be cold.
