The summits and dry valleys of the Transantarctic Mountains are some of the few places in Antarctica not covered by ice. The Dry Valleys lie near McMurdo Sound and represent a special Antarctic phenomenon: landscapes that are snow and ice free due to the extremely limited precipitation and ablation of ice in the valleys.
