Lake Hoare, Dry Valleys, Antarctica, November, 1995, after I installed
a Ritron "radio phone" and a dialup modem at the Field Camp...

It's a one-hour helo ride from McMurdo, one of several Field Camps in
the region.

(There are 20 times the number of people who go to/through the South
Pole each year than ever see the Dry Valleys, so that's not as
"unusual", I'd say, but it's a runner-up)
