Last day in Churchill was a quiet one. Next up: The second leg of the Northern Manitoba journey—a day from Winnipeg to Thompson and back, with stops in Dauphin, Swan River, The Pas, Flin Flon and Norway House, among many others.

Day 2 of 3 in Churchill begins. The day got off to a great start with a zodiac tour of one of Churchill’s great natural wonders—beluga whales. Although I have no good whale photos to show, the tour was exhilarating. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say I’d been waiting most of my life to do tour like this, and it most definitely did not disappoint. As an added bonus, the tour concluded with a very informative visit to the ill-fated Prince of Wales Fort across the river from Churchill.

More from Churchill. The focus here—the soon-to-be decommissioned Port of Churchill. When these photos were taken (late June), it was not yet a given that the port would be closing. It was, however, apparent that it had been hit by hard times. I’d heard from locals that business had been slow, but I don’t think anyone saw the closure coming. Devastating news for the community.

On another note, all of the photos in this set were taken between 9:45pm and 11pm. Incredibly long days in Churchill, punctuated by the incredible light.

Here’s an article on the port closure by my Stuck in the Middle writing partner Bartley Kives, who, by the way, makes an appearance in one of the above photos. See if you can spot him.

Part two of the Churchill trip. Featured here—more abandonment (a running theme in Churchill). First, the remains of a radar base (affiliated with the rocket research range featured yesterday), and Missy Piggy, the curiously named wreckage of a 1979 airplane crash.

After years of tinkering with the idea, I finally made it up to northern Manitoba. Talk about a whirlwind. The trip began with a flight to Churchill and back, followed by a drive that took me through Dauphin, The Pas, Swan River, Flin Flon, Thompson, Norway House and more.

Here’s part one of the Churchill portion of the trip. Featured here are shots of the SS Ithaca, abandoned about one kilometer off shore since 1960, and Fort Churchill Rocket Research Range.
