Antarctica, Patriot Hills Base Camp in Foreground of Mountains, 2001 - This photograph is best viewed enlarged. The area in the foreground that could be mistaken for rocks is actually the entire Patriot Hills base camp for Adventure Network's arrivals in Antarctica. In the far distance is a mountain range. The photograph is taken from the top of Patriot Hills. In the far right foreground is an aircraft, the one used to make special jaunts to places like Mt. Vinson base camp. (This is not the Hercules aircraft used to transport people from Chile to Antarctica.) Just above the camp is a faint line, indicating the ski tracks of the airplane as it landed.
