Working in Antarctica has some nice perks, one of which are the amazing recreational trips organized by the rec office.
Recently I was able to take part in “Room With A View”, a trip by snowmobile to the base of Mount Erebus. Two leaders brought eight of us on the ~1 hour ride out to the small base camp.
It was really fun learning to ride a snowmobile out into such a remote area. We got to hang around for about an hour at the camp, make snow angles, and have a snowball fight before returning to McMurdo.
