The Supply Arch

Jeffrey Donenfeld Travel and Adventure, Trips 1 Comment

Here at the south pole station, we need a lot of supplies – machinery, food, fuel, building supplies, etc. It’s all stored in a few locations around the station grounds – and the bulk of our food is stored in the supply arch. This steel structure lies buried by the snow right next to the elevated station, and the two are linked via the beer can. Also adjacent to the supply arch is the main garage, fuel storage arch, vehicle maintenance facility, among other facilities. A few pics…
