Happy New Year!
Greetings from the Far North, where we’ve had so much cold and snow the past couple of weeks that the polar bears have wandered over! Okay, not true. Back in November, my husband and I took the trip of a lifetime with my sister and brother-in-law to Churchill, Manitoba, Polar Bear Capital of the World. Our excursion was one day only, leaving from the Calgary airport about 6:15 am and returning the same night at about 11:15 pm. Super duper long day, but so worth it! We saw 31 polar bears in the wild from the safety of a tundra buggy (basically a huge enclosed ATV seating about 40 people).
We saw a pair of bears tussling like overgrown puppies just meters from the tundra buggy. Here’s one of my better shots.

This boar was easily the biggest bear we saw that day. He’d had a meal of a seal kill and was having a great nap, but he needed a good yoga stretch in the middle of it!

This bear wandered right beneath the back deck of our tundra buggy. He was so close I could have poked my finger through the grate and touched him. I didn’t. But look at those FEET!
