Dear friend & family,
I’m safely back home in California after our truly extraordinary adventure up in the Arctic Svalbard archipelago 500 miles north of continental Norway. I’ll send you some of my highlight images & perhaps some of Mark Fraser’s video, asap. In the mean time, here is a photo that one of the Norwegians on the expedition just sent me, of the fresh isbørn (ice bear) tracks he discovered one morning, just a few feet from his tent. Notice the size of it, compared to the human hand. Nice to be back here, where all we have to worry about is an occasional great white shark.
