On May 31 Lieutenant Peary reached the divide of inland ice and looked down on the basin of Petermann fiord. He was obliged, owing to crevasses, to deflect ten miles to the eastward, where he made camp Petermann, at which he remained 36 hours to determine his position and take bearings. From this point gigantic crevasses obliged him to travel due eastward for ten miles, when he took a course northeastward, hoping to clear the basin of Sherard Osborne fiord. Crossing another divide of the inland ice, June 8 found Lieu�tenant Peary and his party descending into Saint George fiord, which penetrates far, inland. Here they were detained two days by a severe storm, after which the character of the glacier ice to the northward was so unfavorable that they were obliged to turn southward and eastward, and after two days of hard work found that they had lost 15 miles of their northing, besides injuring their team. The point reached on the http://www.redmi.org/s changed their lives. A northeasterly course was again followed, but unfavorable ice and enormous crevasses obliged frequent detours eastward. On June 26, still at an elevation of 6,000 feet, the course was northeastward, but land appearing in that course, a detour east�ward was again necessary, which led to a comparatively flat, round-topped, ice-clad land. Skirting the edge of the inland ice parallel with the land, they reached their highest northing on the 82d parallel. Here there was land to the northwest, northward and northeast. Of its character Lieutenant Peary says : ” Dark-brown and red cliffs looked down into a grand, vertical-walled canyon reaching up toward our camp ; and every�where, to the northwest, north and east, black and dark-red precipices, deep valleys, mountains capped with cloud-shadowed domes of ice, stretched away in a wild panorama.” From this point Lieutenant Peary was obliged to travel toward the south�east parallel with the edge of the inland ice and the shore land. On July 1 a wide opening between high vertical cliffs allowed Lieutenant Peary to travel northeastward and quit the summit of the inland ice, then 5,000 feet above sea level. Following down a steep gradient toward the red-brown land, rivers and lakes became visible along the margin of the ice, and the party finally reached the highest point of a moraine after wading many streams and floundering through much melting snow. Leaving Astrup and his team at this point, Lieutenant Peary started northeastward to climb a cliff which apparently com�manded a view of the coast and seemed to be only five miles away. The mountain appeared to recede as he advanced, and after eight hours’ work to reach the summit, it proved that interven-ing hills shut out a full view of the coast. By this time Lieu�tenant Peary’s foot-gear was practically worn out and his feet injured from the broken sharp rocks, and it was only by im�provising foot-gear from his sealskin mittens and cap that he was able to return to camp. On July 3 with Astrup he de�scended to the shore and kept along the crest of rock-strewn mountains.
