L. David Mech and Walter Medwid are currently in Resolute and awaiting information on their flight out that will take them approximately 300 miles further north (80 degrees N. latitude) -hopefully tomorrow a.m.
Medwid: The weather is overcast
in Resolute (a community of 200 Inuit people) on Cornwallis
Island; light drizzle; temperature in the upper 30's/low 40's.
We're overlooking Resolute Bay which is still frozen. The
snow cover is about 10% in the surrounding area. We're staying
at an Inuit lodge called Qausuitttuq, but are hoping to fly
out tomorrow am. We did a quick tour of the village this afternoon
and saw that the Inuit have returned from a hunt and taken
a dozen seals.
