Here’s a link guaranteed to make you pause and consider the amazing adventures and achievements of those who came before us. At the very least, the spectacular icy vistas from Antarctica may provide some relief from the hot and humid Japanese summer.
The link is to photos of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s 1914-1916 Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which included transporting sled dogs to help cross the ice to the South Pole. To imagine oneself living such an adventure 100 years ago is both exciting and humbling. Read the English headings for each of the incredible photos!
