A familiar question from a tired little one… “Are we there yet?” This polar bear cub dutifully trailed behind his mom through icy eskers and snow-covered tundra but when she paused for the slightest moment, he plopped himself down, made it clear he was tired and had no intention of taking another step. But their journey here will continue until the bay freezes and releases them onto their winter hunting grounds of sea ice.
