Scott's Discovery Hut

On Sunday I went on a tour of Scott's Discovery Hut at Hut point.  I was very lucky and got Jerod as our tour guide, very knowledgeable and passionate about the history here. The hut was built in 1902 from an Australian design to remain cool in the heat of the outback.  Too cold to live it for any length of time, it was used as storage, a theater and an emergency shelter.
