Dr. E.A. Wilson, And The Silence and Stillness Were Absolute
The man party without animals was to have started for Cape Evans by land as far as Hutton Cliffs and then by sea ice, but it snowed thick all day and cleared only for a beautiful sunset when I went up Observation Hill and sketched until it was dark.
The lights were wonderful and the silence and stillness were absolute.
Tryggve Gran, Ill Luck Pursues Us
Ill luck pursues us; a thick snow-fall put a stopper on our march this morning. This afternoon it cleared up a bit and Bosun [PO] Evans, Crean, and I went up to Castle Rock. A thick blanket of snow lies on the plateau.
