A fun Sunday Hike

Most of the town has Sunday off but with my job I have worked every Sunday since arriving. With my job winding down I took a rare Sunday off yesterday and went for a hike with friends.

When you hike here in Antarctica you have to "check out" with the firehouse. You must file a foot plan & carry a radio. If you are 1 minute late to check in on your foot plan upon returning the Search & Rescue team is activated & the search beings (no joke!!!) We headed out for a 5 mile hike on the Armitage loop which takes us over the hill to Scott Base and then out onto the Sea Ice

Just in case you pop down to visit, here is the "Travel Lodge"

We made it!!!
