As many stories as I hear, few things truly make Antarctica like the pictures. The pictures tell stories on their own and make me hunger for my own adventures. Of the pictures below, from 1965, my favorite is the one that shows open water around Hut Point. I've heard it talked about so much, but I have never seen a picture of it. I never would have imagined that ships, that look like warships, could be that close to shore in an area I identify as being covered in ice.
Dogs were banned because they were giving penguins distemper.
For perspective, that is Hut Point on the right and yes, they did dump their garbage there.
This is the open water that we all hope for and that Scott first sailed.
