North Pole Polar Bears

My wife works for a wildlife adventure travel company which sends people on churchill polar bear tours - Wendy says (from first hand experience) they are pretty darn cool. I haven't been on that trip ... although I did get to go on an African Safari a while back. So my dad Emails me these pictures which are described as coming from the USS Honolulu (a Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine) that was in the Arctic Circle about 280 miles from the North Pole. Here's a few more pictures of these North pole polar bears. While I'm sure the sub crew was pleasantly surprised to see 'em, I wonder what the polar bears thought seeing a big black object coming crashing up outa the ice. Not something you see every day! ;-)

Awesome, do you have more of those shots? Tonight I rode up to the top of the mountain here in Steamboat and gotmy first message that winter is on its way. I always love the first day every year that that feeling hits me.
