Polar Bear Photo Tour Churchill - Homeward Bound - Day Six

The photo trekkers are now back in Winnipeg.  We left Churchill at 11:30 a.m. this morning for our 2 hour and 20 minute flight back to Winnipeg.  To say the least -4 C in Winnipeg was a balmy morning to arrive back to.  It is without saying the cold is part of the Churchill experience and when dressed right an enjoyable one.

Everyone had some free time this morning in Churchill and then the balance of the day in Winnipeg.  We got together for a farewell dinner and slide show tonight.  The show was the images from our weeks trek, combining some fun shots and one or two of the Polar Bears.  

We fly out in a multiple of directions tomorrow, with photographers heading west and east.  I would like to thank everyone that joined me this week on our Polar Bear Trek and to everyone who followed our trek on the blog.  It was fun for the group to read though the comments each day as we shared our journey.

We are up early and back to the airport by 7:00 a.m. for our final leg of the journey home.  Enjoy a few more pics from today and good night from Winnipeg.

This shot was as we prepared for take off from Churchill.

Collin, Brain and Sam as we wait for our flight from Churchill.  The debate is will we be moved from gate 1 to gate 2 ....


Leslie and Sue as we wait.  They have decided it's going to be Gate 2 but are ready to walk the 3 feet to Gate 1 if there should be a change.


This was the last polar bear we saw.  He is in a display case at the airport.


Back in Winnipeg this evening we had our farewell dinner and a slide show from the tiip.  It was Steve our Churchill guide's last tour of the season so he flew back with us and joined in on the dinner.


As we wrap up the blog for this tour, here are two more shots of the Polar Bears.  Thanks again it was great travelling and photographing with all the photograpers that join in on this trekkers tour. Polar Bears day one on the Tundra.

A wonderful journey cool as it was! Hope you all came home with giga bytes of pictures much like those bear's paws. Huge things they are and a wonder that the seal's fate is pretty much done with one swipe of those paws. A great adventure enjoyed by all, even those who didn't go...

Too bad my entertainment for each evening has gone home. If anyone forgot anything I will go back to Churchill with you to retrieve it! I enjoyed the blog from Churchill the most of any so far. Great shots everyone.

Another great trip. I agree with the comment above I enjoy checking in each evening and following the trip. Your blogs are great, and long may they continue.

It has been Un-Bear-able sitting here looking at your photos, wishing I was there. 

Looks like it was a fantastic trip.
