Castle Rock 2014

Heavy Fog on the flagged route

Heavy Fog on the flagged route

We took a hike out to Castle Rock this afternoon which is part of McMurdo’s trail system.  Its about an 8 mile round trip walk and a darn good time.  We walked in under heavy fog but were able to climb above it once on the rock which is about 200 feet tall.  The views from the top show the top of the fog layer we hiked in on the way out.
