(13574x1287, 9033.73 kb) The view from the top of Observation Hill. The cut is northeastward, in the middle of Mount Terror. There are two roads at left, the lower one is the Scott Base Road. The upper one heads to the T-Site, which can be seen at right. Scott Base, on Pram Point, can bee seen just in front of the pressure ridges. In the distance is the LDB Camp at Willy Field. Another road down the hill to the ice can bee seen directly below LDB Camp. This road is closed and of unknown use. On the horizon across the ice are White Island, Minna Bluff, Black Island, Mount Discovery, Brown Peninsula and then the Royal Society Range. The ice runway is below and all of McMurdo Station can be seen to the right. Above McMurdo is Hut Point. To the right of Hut Point is Arrival Heights, with White Dome (in front) and Grey Dome (behind). Beyond Grey Dome is Tent Island and Inaccessible Island. Castle Rock is prominent at right, with Erebus behind it. At far right is the T-Site (where T stands for Transmitter), on top of Fortress Rocks, with Crater Hill behind it. The transmitters on the T-Site communicate with the satellite uplink on Black Island to provide all communication to and from McMurdo.
