View Point (Antarctic Peninsula), Snow Hill Island

“Of the gladdest moments in life, me thinks, is the departure upon a distant journey to unknown lands.  Shaking off twitch one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many dares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy...afresh dawns the morn of life.

--Sir Richard Burton, Journal entry 2 Dec 1856

This morning we hope to land at View Point, located in Duse Bay, which was discovered by a party under J. Gunnar Andersson of Nordenskjöld’s Swedish Antarctic Expedition and so named by FIDS during the surveys of 1945.   Further exploration and mapping of the peninsula was conducted from this site by Sir Walley Herbert of the British Antarctic Survey by means of dog sledging teams.

Located on Snow Hill is the hut in which Otto Nordenskjöld and five of his colleagues spent two winters.  With Nordenskjöld was a young Argentine naval officer, Lieutenant José Sobral who, became the first Argentine to pass this amount of time in Antarctica.  During the time that Nordenskjöld was at Snow Hill major fossil discoveries were made on both Snow Hill and Seymour Island to the east.
