 Cape Evans, Antarctica from the sea ice on arrival. The Cape Evans Hut was built by Captain Scott's 1911 Terra Nova Expedition. This is the expedition in which Scott made his fatal attempt to reach the South Pole.  This is also the expedition during which Cherry-Garrard, Wilson and Bowers made the  Worst Journey in the World  winter journey to Cape Crozier to collect Emperor Penguin eggs.
