Inexpressible Island - Antarctica

Inexpressible Island in the Ross Sea is home to a small Adelie Penguin rookery. This low bleak Island is the site of an amazing story of survival where Scotts Northern party were forced to over-winter in a snow cave. Two plaques mark the site of the cave were the men suffered until their departure on the 30th September 1912 for Ross Island across the sea ice. This is a rarely visited site which is challenging to access and it is not hard to imagine why the men called this place "Hell with a capital H."
