A beautiful evening


“The blizzard cleared at noon and it was a beautiful evening, but we would far rather have the screeching blizzard with its searching drift and cold camp wind, for we drifted along 11 miles to the north during the night. If only we could get along at this rate for the next month or two we should be up to the land by new year, but that is too much to hope for.”

— Thomas Orde-Lees
