We pack up. Our charter flight back to Resolute Bay will arrive at 10:00 the next morning. The weather is good, so there is no reason to think the flight will be delayed. Edgar hangs around, but the mystery of where he came from remains. He has become a virtual mascot at the weather station, however, and the staff will take care of him through the long dark winter.
We head for the den to say our farewells. Life will go on for the wolf pack – the pups and Mother and Brutus, Grayback and Dirt Ball, Redneck and Bottle Brush and Gimpy. Leaving them is terribly hard, but it is good to know they are healthy and thriving. Maybe they will be here next summer when Dave returns to continue his study of the wolves of the High Arctic and to share his discoveries with the scientific community and the general public as well.
