Cape Cro­zier

The day could have had a very ear­ly start with a Zodiac crui­se at Cape Cro­zier, whe­re the Ross Ice Shelf meets Ross Island. But the wind was screa­ming around the ship, zodiacs were not even a remo­te opti­on. Nevertheless it was inte­res­ting to have seen the famous cape, even from a distance. Next to the sce­nic and ani­ma­listic impres­si­ons, it is the „Worst jour­ney in the World“ (sple­ndid­ly nar­ra­ted by Aps­ley Cher­ry-Gar­r­ard) which made Cape Cro­zier famous. I have to sum­ma­ri­ze this wild sto­ry in a few sen­ten­ces, but not now. Now I have to watch out. Mount Ere­bus should come into view soon, and the Tran­s­ant­arc­tic Moun­tains are alrea­dy on the hori­zon. We are hea­ding for Cape Royds and Cape Evans now. Fin­gers cros­sed that it will work out well.
