Northward: Peary’s 1908-09 Expedition

The Roosevelt was a blaze of light

This morning we went up to point to take pictures of sledges, dogs, and Esquimaux going over the ice. Far to the west the sun shone brilliantly on some of the mountain peaks, making a beautiful sight.
    After getting back to the ship our very spot was lighted up, the pack ice and upper mast of the Roosevelt was a blaze of light. I developed pictures most of the afternoon and evening.
