My Best Shot

Joy Marino

I live in White Hall, and last month I visited Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, on a polar bear expedition with World Wildlife Fund/Natural Habitat Adventures. The trip was unbelievable, perfect and beyond words. We were able to travel on the tundra to observe the bears in their natural habitat. This is a photo of a mama bear and her two cubs approaching the tundra vehicle. This time of year, they travel to Churchill waiting for the Hudson Bay to freeze so they can go out to hunt seals.
