Distance from Fargo: 830 miles

Comments: This photo was taken on the tundra from our Tundra Buggy. The polar bears in the photo were three of many that we viewed. The bears were gathering on the shore waiting for the ice on Hudson Bay to freeze solid, enabling them to return to their seal-hunting areas. This was a marvelous trip, a once-in-a-lifetime experience of viewing the polar bears in their natural environment.
