NE winds are blowing from the Arctic. Temperature is down to well below -20s F with wind chill. This is what the weather should be like here. Bears are getting edgy and ready to head out on the sea ice as soon as possible. I am just as excited as them for different reasons.
This year, the encounters are quite good. Came across a few mothers with cubs. They all seem rather healthy for this time of the year. Visit my Polar Bear page to see more photos from my previous trips.
