McMurdo Dry Valleys and Ross Island
This view shows McMurdo Sound and Ross Island at the edge of the Ross Ice Shelf on the right next to McMurdo Dry Valleys on the left which are some of very few sites in Antarctica not covered by snow and ice due to the extremely dry climate. In the background the mountains of Victoria Land can be seen edging to the Ross Sea on the right.
