At times it seems as though we are living in a perpetual winter, except for those 80+ degree days at home. Now that we count them, we’ve had three springs this year. Our third spring is occuring at the 58th parallel, not far from the arctic circle. We’re in Churchill, Manitoba looking for the ice to clear from Hudson Bay, polar bears to come on shore, beluga whales to congregate, and the tundra to bloom. However, spring is also hearlded by the onslaught of hords of the mighty mosquito. They arrived today, along with us.
So join us as we spend five weeks at the Churchill Northern Studies Centre getting to know the environment at the arctic’s edge. Check out our photos under “Portfolio” at http://www.catonphoto.com/.
