The Winter Journey: 7 July, 1911

From Edward Wilson’s Diary:

“We got away late at noon in a thick white fog which made it impossible to see where we were going. . . .We made only 1-2/3 miles in the whole day.  The min. temp. last night was -75.9 degrees.  At 2 p.m. -58.3 degrees and at 7 p.m. -55.4 degrees, a rise for which we were grateful as it is distinctly easier to save one’s feet from frost bit at -50 than at -70.”
