mountain at the Lower

You can clearly see the Erebus Ice tongue glacier and several ice falls on the way up. the first pics

pic Erebus 20 you can see some steam rising from vents. 21 and 23 are pics of the little huts near
the summit. The pic Erebus 19 is of the crater rim and you can see all the crystal scree that is
about 1000 ft below the rim.
