A dog-sledge team with Erebus in the background
|Gallery location||Not on display|
|Description||A view across the sea ice, looking north east towards Mount Erebus with a smoke cloud from the crater being wisked away on the wind. In the foreground is a dog-sledge team. The dogs are at rest sitting or lying down, and the two men are by the sledge. If dated correctly, these may be Captain Scott and Cecil Meares, who took a dog team on 15 January to visit Hut Point and the hut Scott constructed in 1902 for his previous expedition. The caption in Ponting's book (The Great White South) states "Summit of Mount Erebus hidden by driving scud".|
