The first day and a half were spent getting to Churchill. Left out of North Carolina around 7:00 and with a layover at O'Hare I arrived in Winnipeg (bottom) around 3:00 local time.
I was told the airport hotel was right across the street from the airport but I had no idea just how close the two are to each other. This is a view from my room (top)
The next morning I was up early and on to Churchill! Notice in this photo (top) how some of the tributaries are beginning to freeze.
We made a quick stop in Thompson (bottom) for fuel.
