Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

A prairie fire


Early this morning the wind began blowing very fresh from the S.W. + has kept it up all day + this evening. The sun is shining, the temp. is high + the snow on the land is disappearing almost as before a prairie fire. Pools of water are also forming about the ship. Two ptarmigan shot near ship today.
