Polar Bear Eating Kelp


It’s day 2 on the tundra and, again, what an awesome experience. The snow on the tundra today gave the landscape an entirely different look. We were so fortunate to have seen several arctic animals today. The arctic hare, the muskrat, two red foxes and one arctic fox, several species of shore birds and two polar bears, all living together and sharing the land. Again, we had lunch with a fantastic view of a polar bear.

It was sad to leave this primitive land we grew to love in such a short time.

Tonight we had an early dinner and boarded the 7:00 p.m. train for our 16 hour train ride back to Thompson. We had a double sleeper room with bunk beds that had to be unlocked and pulled down from the ceiling by the porter. The room was about 6x8 that included a toilet. Having never ridden on an overnight train before, it was quite the experience! We had a nice breakfast in the dining car before arriving in Thompson around 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
