A United States Coast Guard helicopter is seen against the backdrop of Mt. Discovery, across McMurdo Sound from McMurdo Station on Friday, Jan. 12, 2001. Helicopters are a lifeline to the outlying camps in areas near McMurdo station, but bad weather can ground them for days at a time. Goes with weather notes, to be filed saturday.
