A few more pics.
From top to bottom: 1) Airport camp with fortifications against polar bears. 2) The altimeter read just under 2000m. Crispin puts thing right. 3) Late night sun. 4) Clearing weather. 5) Eric, the airport manager laughed and shook his head when we asked if we should worry about polar bears. When we showed him this he spent a long time gazing into the distance, then lent us his rifle and told us hang some pots and pans round our tents. Polar bears, apparently, are scared of pots and pans.
