December 31, 1912: New Year’s Eve at Cape Evans

–from Tryggve Gran’s diary published as “The Norwegian with Scott“–

31 December. The last day of this trange year has come. I hope 1913 will bring me some of the luck lacking in 1912. Tonight two years have passed since the polar land mass came into sight for the first time. It was just such a night as this when storm-driven clouds lifted now and again to uncover the might of the wild mountains.”
