Miss PiggyOur trip to churchill started early with a 6am meeting in the lobby of our Winnipeg hotel. Shortly after we were loaded onto a bus and driven around to teh far side of the airport and loaded onto an old Convair 580. We took off before sun rise, however we couldn’t really tell thanks to the heavy cloud and fog cover.

Two hours later we arrived in Churchill, and were put onto an old school bus and given a tour of the area by our guide Hayley and our driver Pam. The seats on the bus were designed with school kids in mind, not adults with large backpacks full of camera equipment. We saw the outside of the polar bear jail, and a beach with lots of bear snares and also an old cargo plane that crash landed.

Tomorrow we’re onto the Tundra Buggy to go out and see the polar bears and oher wildlife.
