Visit to Scott's Hut

Yesterday I received a tour of Scott's Hut at Hut Point near McMurdo.  The Point is only about half a mile from the base and is an easy walk.  It was a beautiful day (5F and no wind) and a nice trip.  Because I was on an official tour I got to go inside the hut, which is normally closed to visitors.

The hut was built between 1901 and 1904 and was entirely prefabricated in England.  Unfortunately the hut proved too cold to live in and the men of Scott's expedition chose to sleep in the much warmer ship, which was anchored only about 50 yards away.  The hut was used mostly for supplies and equipment and daily living on and off for the next 25 years for several expeditions.

I neglected to get an exterior shot of the hut, which I will get soon and post here.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually
something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I will
try to get the hang of it!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?

I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. Nevertheless imagine
if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!

Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its
field. Great blog!
