  •  A remarkable man. So great to see someone (7+ / 0-)

    who lives life so fully, and whose work is much more than a job. Clearly he loves and understands bears, getting to know them on their own terms. Magnificent creatures.

    And that Arctic countryside is serious and unforgiving if you get into trouble. My dad did some trips up in that area, out of Resolute, with groups searching for the remains of Franklin's expedition - he was the explorer who got lost looking for the Northwest Passage in the mid 1800s. Harsh environment, from the stories my dad told. Even where it wasn't ice, the rock was bad to walk on, so sharp their boots got torn up. They saw bears but at a distance. Had great respect for them!

    What terrific uncles, Polly. I bet you learned a lot from them, wildlife being just part of it.
