Here are several pictures of Mt. Erebus and vicinity.  Some are at the top of the mountain at the Lower
Erebus Hut camp.  Most are aerial shots from a helicopter that I took up there to open the camp.
You can clearly see the Erebus Ice tongue glacier and several ice falls on the way up. The first pictures,
Marble Point 19 & 20, are the entrance to the Dry Valley's.  Picture 90 is of the steaming crater rim and          
picture- Erebus 20 you can see some steam rising from vents.  21 and 23 are pictures of the little huts near
the summit. The picture- Erebus 19 is of the crater rim and you can see all the crystal scree that is
about 1000 ft below the rim.
