July 15: Beechey Island





The weather is still poor at Ward Hunt island, our northernmost destination.
Meanwhile we visit the site of the Franklin Expedition on Beechey Island (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beechey_Island). We find the remains of a young dead polar bear (maybe killed by a desperate and famished bear? maybe by a male trying to get the mother's attention? we will never know...).
Meanwhile Mark mounts guard in case another lives one shows up...
