Town of Churchill, Manitoba, Canada


After spending four nights on the Tundra Lodge, we returned early in the morning to the small town (population ~1,000) of Churchill before flying out that afternoon on our charter flight back to Winnipeg, Canada.

Looking NW down Kelsey Blvd, the main street of Churchill - mouseover image to see wide-angle
