So I find myself leafing through my exploration books, looking at pictures of the Ernest Shackleton expedition ( photos by Frank Hurley who in my opinion is one of the best photographers ever ), Roald Amundsen, and Sir Robert Scott. And that's just the Antarctic stuff, then there is all my arctic books on Greely, Amundsen, Nanson etc etc.... It's been 2 years since my last trek into the arctic so I must be having withdrawals or something ;-) How can someone who dislikes winter want to travel north so bad?
But anyhow, I'm sure a few of you are shaking your heads, but I thought maybe I'd share a few links that I check from time to time to get my "fix". These are webcams of various locations around the Antarctic. Some only update daily while others update every few minutes. Some show the south pole station while others show penguins. Regardless, enjoy, I know I do ;-)
The actual Amundsen-Scott Station located at the South Pole.

And a couple of non-arctic ones that I love!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Christmas shopping is mostly done and Jen and I are just chilling on the farm watching movies and staying warm. Have a great one everyone!
