McMurdo Misc, part 17

Here are some more random images that I have taken over the last week or so.  Several are of Hut Point and Observation Hill (Ob Hill), a 300' lava cone on the edge of McMurdo town that I climb on occasion. It's a good workout, and if I'm too tired to hike up it, I walk around it. The Ob hill loop trail is almost 3 miles long.  Between the cold wind and the loose rock, it's always interesting.
