Our last degree expedition officially kicked off this evening with a welcome reception and dinner. It was a beautiful day in the Arctic...sunny, calm and stunning. Ian made the most of the day by taking a pre-expedition snow mobile trip to Templefjord where he saw several seals and polar bear tracks. Elham and Andrea stayed closer to home fine-tuning their kits. Taylor also worked on his kit and helped out with other pre-expedition logistics.
After the welcome reception they went out for dinner before heading in for an early night. There will be much to do tomorrow!
Check back tomorrow for another update from the team.
