More about the Huts

There’s a great organization called the Antarctica New Zealand Heritage Trust that has gone through painstaking efforts to restore all of these huts. Here’s a link to find out more about this particular hut. And if you’re a history buff, you may enjoy reading more stuff on that site too… quite interesting!

Daily Photo – Dining in, in Antarctica

This is Captain Scott's hut at St. Evans. I was lucky enough to visit all the huts. There are lots of interesting things about this hut, but one of the most interesting, to me, is this was his 2nd expedition to Antarctica, so he knew what he was doing. There were not only a lot more supplies, but also the kitchen fire exhaust pipes weaved around the entire hut to warm it. There was basically always food being prepared, so it kept the inside nice and warm.
