Photo Grab #3: VMF-Nov-29

I don't have much time to see the sites this year, but at least I get photos from folks who do. I'll share some of the albums McMurdo folks put on the I-Drive to show the rest of the world what the beautiful Ice is like. Below are some penguins and an old hut from the early explorers. I wish I could live in the hut and do my own research.
