Another cold day (temps around 16F) in Churchill though the forecast calls for a warming trend in the next day or so. Anticipation continued to build for the Olympic torch weekend which will culminate on Sunday with the torch relay through downtown Churchill. Should be amazing.

On the land in the CWMA all groups had a good afternoon to follow up a morning filled with numerous mother and cub sightings and interactions. Guide Sue and her travelers experienced a fulfilling afternoon. A mother with two cubs was seen bedded down at 8:30 am and then again at 3:30 in the exact same location and position. Bears have a tough time getting going on Monday’s too. Out at Gordon Point, the group found a trio of Glaucous Gulls; a four year old, a female and a juvenile. A Silver Fox was on the road back into town heading toward a brilliant red sunset over the Churchill River.
