100th Anniversary of First Ascent of Mount Erebus
Tomorrow (March 10th) is the 100th Anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Erebus, which is largest active volcano on the continent of Antarctica. The group that first climbed this mountain were part of Shackleton's 1907-1909 expedition. The anniversary is being celebrated in what may seen an old location of Sorocco, New Mexico, but it relates to Mount Erebus in that this is where the Mount Erebus Volcano Observatory is located.
