Departure from Churchill
There always comes an end to a great trip and this one was and is particularly sad. Our superb local leader Pat Rouseau took us to the airport, stopping along the way at my request so we could make a presentation and let him know of how we appreciated his tireless efforts, incredibly interesting wealth of knowledge, and unequalled kind ways. A trip to Churchill without Pat would be half the experience. We all are privileged to have witnessed this incredible migration of the world's largest land carnivore and to have spent time with Pat.

We had a great Farewell Dinner in Winnipeg, including kind words from travelers, and my deepest appreciation to the travelers for their great spirit, patience, and for being such interesting people with which to be. I hope we will all be able to get together again for another adventure.

More will come to this blog with a trip summary and photos. Eventually a book of the photos will be available on line.

Thanks for reading the blog and thanks to all the families of the travelers for sharing loved ones with us. We hope you enjoyed reading about our adventure and will perhaps be able to join us next time yourselves.
