Yesterday was a great day on the Great Ice Bear Adventure!
Beautiful sunny skies at sunrise, and we could hear a moose calling on the other side of the lake, so we gathered everyone up and walked across the ice.
Moose are hard to find, so my expectations were low, but when we approached the far shore we spotted a cow and calf and then a bull! We managed to catch them slicing through the trees in the video above, but they were quick!
We came back and found two arctic foxes on the bay and then spent the afternoon on the ice with our resident bear “Scarbrow”. The photographers were in heaven. The light was beautiful and Scarbrow circled around to give us every angle! We finished the day with a spectacular display of northern lights!
Don’t know how we will top that today, but it isn’t even breakfast time yet and Scarbrow is already performing at the fence for us.
We get the feeling he already knows how fast a moose can run.
