Mech and Medwid were able to
fly further into the arctic today, near the home of the weather
station that is closest to the North Pole.
Mech and Medwid: Our last night in
Resolute brought snow flurries; for dinner we enjoyed musk
ox stew-it was great! Musk oxen is an important for food source
for the Inuit.
We arrived at our base today; just missing
a big snowstorm which has made things quite muddy. En route
from Resolute we saw only 22 musk oxen from the air in over
a hundred square miles-the number of musk oxen is lower than
we had anticipated. The fjord is still frozen in; a polar
bear was seen here about two weeks ago. There have been a
few wolf sightings in the last few weeks giving us hope that
we may see them for ourselves.
